The Mommy Mingle: And Dads, Too!

It can be tough to find mom friends! Between diaper changes, nap schedules, and lack of sleep, who has the time or energy to make meaningful adult connections? At FCMoD, we want to make that just a little easier.

The Mommy Mingle: And Dads, Too is a great opportunity to meet other parents with little ones aged 0-3, connect, and learn from one another. Not only will there be “speed dating” for moms, but we’ll have set conversation times around some of the most common parenting topics, such as infant and toddler development. There will also be time to play with other parents and children!

This month we’re also welcoming dads to join the comradery! While speed dating is reserved for the moms, we encourage the dads to chat and mingle, too! Ticket includes entry into our current special exhibition, Game Changers.

Tickets: $10 general/ $5 for members (kids are free!)
Ticket includes one beer/wine drink ticket and snacks

All parents, guardians, and expecting parents welcome. Children 0 – 3 only.

SOLD OUT: Playground Ensemble – Live in the Dome

The Space Program

Space and Astronomy has fascinated humans for centuries, but one of the distinguishing characteristics of the 20th Century was humanity’s journey into that great unknown made possible by NASA’s Space Program and others like it across the globe. Our desire to know more about the universe and our place within it touches all aspects of our culture, from music, to movies, to pop-culture and beyond.

In this fully immersive concert program, The Playground Ensemble closely collaborates with uniquely trained video artists and audio engineers to explore how space exploration and discovery has influenced today’s contemporary classical composers. The program will include pieces by George Crumb and Annie Gosfield, as well as 3 new compositions by Conrad Kehn, Nathan Hall, and Monica Bolles.

You will hear sounds taken from satellites orbiting the planet, and actual astronomical data from NASA will be used to create audio spatialization.

Doors open at 7:30 pm, performance starts at 8:00 pm.
Cash bar will be available.

$12/$10 for members. Pre-registration is recommended. (more…)
