2300°: St. Patrick's Day with a Twist

Here at the Museum, we're celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a "twist", including live Reggae music by John Brown's Body and a glassblowing demonstration by artist Ché Rhodes.

Music by John Brown’s Body
Guests will be treated to some of the best reggae around. A veteran band of Rolling %%Stone%%’s alternative Top 10 chart and reviewed by the Village Voice (“Of all the stateside roots-rock reggae at its best, this...outfit beams that mystic vibe best.”), John Brown’s Body provides the perfect rhythm for a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day with a %%twist%%.

Glass Artist – Ché Rhodes
No green in this glass! Glassblower Ché Rhodes, head of the new glass department at the University of Louisville, works almost exclusively with clear, colorless glass. He says “Clear glass is pure and exists only as what it really is…it affords the opportunity to present ideas through true form.” Rhodes adds his hot glass %%twist%% to our St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Refreshments available. Free admission.
