A silent disco was part of the 2016 Big Art Party at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, held in conjunction with the museum's grand reopening. This year's party is set for Oct. 21.

“Black, White & Art All Over” is the theme for the second annual Big Art Party, set for Oct. 21 at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg.

The celebration will begin at 6 p.m. with a VIP Party featuring food by Bob Sendall of All in Good Taste Productions, entertainment by Two Tall Twins, party favors and open bar with specialty cocktails.

A Big Art Dance Party will follow from 7:30 to 11 p.m. with cash bar, small bites, art activities, live music by Neon Swing X-perience and the High and Mighty Brass Band, and special performances by Kierra Darshell’s Drag Divas and DJ KellyA spinning Electro-Swing.

“We see the Big Art Party as a fun opportunity to celebrate the museum and our incredible supporters and local partners, while giving the community a wonderful, creative experience that supports the work we do every day,” says Judith Hansen O’Toole, the museum’s Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO.

The party will mark the museum’s second year of operation following a major renovation and expansion project completed in 2015. Proceeds will support education and exhibition programs at the facility at 221 N. Main St.

Presenting sponsors are Susie and Roy Dorrance; Strassburger, McKenna, Gutnick & Gefsky; and UPMC Health Plan.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
