Grab your favorite pillow, don your most stylish PJ's and join the "wild rumpus" at Pepe Mar's Pajama Party, on Saturday, August 24, from 7 to 11 p.m., at the Young At Art Museum, located at 751 SW 121 Avenue in Davie.  The adults-only reception, presented by Bedlam Lorenz Assembly, Young At Art's contemporary arts and alternative projects group, will be centered around PEPE MAR 2005-2013, an exhibition of the Miami artist's works over the past eight years. During this imaginative celebration, guests will be able to visit the Museum's current traveling exhibition Where the Wild Things Are: Maurice Sendak in His Own Words and Pictures, for which Bedlam Lorenz Assembly infused Mar’s sculptures, including a group of four sculptures titled Don’t Stop the Music, which recently was added to Young At Art’s permanent collection through the generosity of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz. In addition, guests will be treated to late-night snacks, an open bar and themed arts and party activities thoughtfully staged throughout the Museum.

          "This reception will be out of the ordinary," said Zack Spechler, from the Bedlam Lorenz Assembly. "Mar's works reflect his fascination with fantasy so we thought it would be a curious pairing with Maurice Sendak's works. The pajama party relates to the character Max, who goes on a dream-like adventure in his pajamas to a land of monsters in the popular children's book, Where the Wild Things Are.”

          PEPE MAR 2005-2013 showcases 21 of the Miami artist's works, which were created during an eight-year span. The exhibition is open now through Sunday, Sept. 15 in tandem with the Museum's national traveling exhibition Where the Wild Things Are: Maurice Sendak in His Own Words and Pictures.

This exhibition was made possible with support from the Collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz.

          Tickets for Pepe Mar's Pajama Party are $20 or $15 for all guests wearing bedtime attire.
