Little Academy Presents: Surrealism 101

Get weird. Learn how many surrealists it takes to screw in a lightbulb. (Hint: numbers are just sound.) Debate the merits of tapping into the unconscious. Move past Dali’s mustache and into the roots and repercussions of this movement. Learn what remnants lie around DC and why a dash of what came after Dada might help cure what ails you. Work your way through some drinks while you explore surrealist games and draft a manifesto.

Cost: Free / Suggested Donation $30
