Georgia Museum of Art to host last Museum Mix of the year

Friday, October 13, 2017

The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will host its third Museum Mix of the year on October 19 from 8 to 11 p.m. All of the galleries will be open for the late-night art party. WesdaRuler will start the night with original lo-fi hip hop beats and DJ Reindeer Games will play a collage of various genres of music throughout the night. Free refreshments and snacks will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.

Ben Bradberry, who goes by the name DJ Reindeer Games, is a local deejay who has performed at venues including Little Kings Shuffle Club, the Georgia Theatre and the 40 Watt Club. He enjoys mixing popular songs and crowd favorites with new sounds and rhythms to create a unique experience. Bradberry says of the night, “My goal is to create a sonic environment that will compliment the works of Mickalene Thomas: auditory collages of hip hop, world music, and 60s living room grooves.”

Wesley Johnson, who performs under the name WesdaRuler, is an Athens-based producer and experimental hip-hop artist. He hopes to add to the eclectic mix of music in Athens and expand the beats and hip-hop scene. WesdaRuler has performed at venues such as the Georgia Theatre, Hendershots and the 40 Watt club.

Exhibitions on view include “Modern Masters from the Giuliano Ceseri Collection,” “Louise Blair Daura: A Virginian in Paris,” “Martha Odum: Art Intersects Ecology” and “Muse: Mickalene Thomas Photographs and tête-à-tête.”

Sponsors of the event include Amici, Big City Bread, Donderos’ and White Tiger Gourmet.
