The Phillips Contemporaries are heading over to Dock 5 at Union Market on Friday, May 8 for an evening inspired by Harajuku, Tokyo underground and Japanese pop art. The exhibition will feature Hiroshi Sugimoto: Conceptual Forms and Mathematical Models, one of Japan’s foremost contemporary artists.

The celebration will include open premium bar with Japanese-inspired cocktails, DJ Ben Chang, gaming stations with Super Smash Bros, Street Fighter, Minecraft, and Mario Kart, a taiko drummer, snowcream truck, and a fashion lounge with two-way mirror photo booth.

The event will be Co-Chaired by consummate host Carl Bedell and sponsors include: Lockheed Martin, Chevron, AT&T, Total Wine, ESA and Menkiti Group Real Estate.
