On the third Thursday of every month, the Minneapolis Institute of Art stays up late and throws a free party with fun activities, live music, drinks, and free access to its current special exhibition. On May 17, for the second year in a row, Twin Cities Geek is helping make that event as nerdy as possible as part of Nerd Thursday!
At this event, you can:
- Challenge yourself with our trivia to prove your nerd prowess—you may just win an awesome nerdy prize!
- Get a sneak peek at the progress on the newest 3M ArtTech project, Riddle Mia This (Click here to read our interview with app creators Colin McFadden and Samantha Porter!)
- Play virtual-reality Jenga and other games with the Nerdery—plus check out their 3D printer
- Learn about “The Monsters of Mia” with Reverend Matt’s Monster Science
- Strike a pose in the Mia photo booth (featuring the geeky speech bubbles we bring to all our events)
- Dance to live music from Early Eyes
And while you’re there, you can also check out Mia’s current special exhibition, Power and Beauty in China’s Last Dynasty, for free! Space may fill up, so you might not get in unless you join My Mia—which you can also do for free—and reserve your tickets ahead of time.
We hope to see you there!
