Event: Saturday, May 7 from 8pm to 11pm
Grab your flippers and chart a course for Pyramid Atlantis—a sea themed party-slash-fundraiser that explores Pyramid’s inky depths. Splish-splash in our studios while making waves on paper, inking up fish, and printing with a clamshell press. Guests will explore a Life Aquatic art exhibition and a silent auction full of buried treasure while receiving treats from mythical mermaids and enjoying music fit for a pirate crew.
Pyramid Atlantic’s infamous HyBall (Hyattsville Ball) … and it’s gonna be splashy! A party of “overboard” proportions, the HyBall offers plenty of opportunities for fun while also raising money to support Pyramid’s facility and programming. Come out to explore Pyramid’s inky depths on May 7th with HyBall: Pyramid Atlantis!
In Pyramid’s studios, attendees will make coasters on a clamshell press, print fish in the Gyotaku tradition, marble paper in sea-inspired waves and hues, and learn the secrets of map folding.
The gallery will host the Life Aquatic exhibition, which opens at the event and runs through May 29. Artists include Scott G. Brooks, Shawn Brown, Lyell Castonguay, David Curtis, Georgia Deal, April Flanders, Beth Hansen, Marty Ittner, Eric Leland, Sarah Noreen, Alexandra Sherman, Henrik Sundqvist, Julio Valdez, and Tinam Valk. Guests can also explore a Sea Monkey Palace installation created by Jared Davis during the show’s run.
Treasure hunters will find delights in the silent auction, including even more art, boat trips, water-inspired getaways, and thematic experiences.
Sips and treats will be delivered to guests by mermaids, sailors, and other sea creatures. Plus guests will enjoy maritime music and sea shanties from The Natterjacks followed by a dance party with Boogie Capt. DJ P.VO.
Tickets include complimentary beer and wine from Franklins and chum buckets full of snacks to keep everyone on an even keel. For a few extra clams, a signature HyBall beverage featuring Sangfroid Gin is on offer.
