The Erie Art Museum patio may be located on Fifth Street in downtown Erie, but on Friday, June 27, the folks will look to help you celebrate like you were located on the other half of the world during pARTy on the Patio: Bollywood Style.

The annual fundraiser returns for a night promising the charms of India and the Himalayas. Cinephiles can enjoy the films of Bollywood in the indoor lounge before wandering the galleries to view bronze and stone sculptures, Tibetan paintings, and other visual wonders of southern Asia. You can even become a part of the art exhibit yourself, with onsite henna tattoo artists and stations where you can create your own bindi, a traditional forehead decoration.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a true pARTy on the Patio without dancing, so the Art Museum is bringing in DJ Rehka to keep the party thumping, fusing together Bhangra, an upbeat genre drawing from India’s Punjabi region, and international hip-hop.

In addition to the aforementioned entertainment opportunities, Make It Fabulous Catering will provide tasty fusion foods to go along with complimentary craft brews and a cash cocktail bar, all available for $35 advance or $45 at the door, a small fee for the Bollywood red carpet treatment. – Alex Bieler
