Press Room


Kurt Wood to play Museum Mix at the Georgia Museum of Art

Monday, June 25, 2018

The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will host its summer Museum Mix on June 28, from 8 to 11 p.m., with its galleries open for the late-night art party. Kurt Wood will be playing tunes, and free refreshments and snacks will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.

Wood is best known around town for his regular vinyl sales, which he holds on his porch and in his garage. A long-time record collector, he needs some way to weed out items he no longer considers worthy of inclusion in his library that numbers into the tens of thousands. People travel for miles to dig through his discards, but he’ll be playing some of his favorites at this event. Wood has DJed since his days at WUOG, UGA’s student-run radio station, and also manages the Milledge Avenue Taco Stand.

Wood said, “It has been a long time wish of mine to participate in such a cool event. I am digging through my collection, and I plan to play a set that will hopefully amaze and impress and maybe even get some dancing going among all who attend. Hope to see YOU there!!”

Exhibitions on view include “Bloom Where You’re Planted: The Collection of Deen Day Sanders” and “A Legacy of Giving: C. Herman and Mary Virginia Terry.”

Sponsors of the event include Mama’s Boy, Marti’s at Midday, White Tiger Gourmet, Ike & Jane, Amici, Heirloom Cafe and Big City Bread.
