Event: Saturday, February 29 from 8pm to 11:30pm
Hit the road for Pyramid Atlantic to honor the kitsch, the retro, and the outrageous. The HyBall (Hyattsville Ball) returns, and it’s gonna be huge. In addition to being an over-the-top party, this annual bash helps raise money to support Pyramid’s facility and programs.
HyBall: Roadside Attraction takes place on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 8-11:30 pm. Tickets are $40 and include complimentary beer and wine. Tickets at pyramidatlanticartcenter.org/hyball2020 or by calling 301-608-9101.
In Pyramid’s studios, attendees will make a GIGANTIC sheet of paper, print the WORLD’S TINIEST ETCHINGS. learn the secrets of the WONDER BOOK, and print AMAZING retro postcards and posters. These activities will be led by artists of Pyramid Atlantic and result in a DIY gift bag full of handmade goodies.
Upstairs in the gallery, music is on the menu with vinyl spun by Red Onion Records and, later in the evening, the ROCK-A-SONICS take over with their atomic age rockabilly!
RIDICULOUS photo ops abound with a prehistoric themed bar, 1 hole of Dinosaur putt-putt, and a giant “waving” cowboy. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE…the world’s most silent auction will be populated with Roadside Attraction inspired art and experiences, beer will be on tap from Streetcar 82, wine will be provided by the cellars of Franklin’s, signature cocktails will feature spirits from Sangfroid Distilling, and OUT OF THIS WORLD munchies will include dino cupcakes from DC Sweet Potato Cake.
