January 25, 2013

The Canadian Museum of Nature is gearing up to rock the castle with Nature Nocturne, débuting January 25. This new programme promises an exciting way for adults to discover the Museum after hours in a fun, lively, artsy atmosphere. The inaugural event will feature The Luminartists, who specialize in interactive digital projections. They will set up an abstract projection where people can move images on a screen to reveal an amazing animation underneath. Local artist HeARTbeatgal will create a collaborative piece of art with the participation of visitors to the museum. Starting with a thought-provoking question, visitors will be invited to contribute to the art/question by making their thumbprint mark in a chosen colour of ink. Local knitter, Greta Grip, will be on-site with her knitted QR codes that, when scanned with Smartphones, link to interesting video. All galleries will be open until midnight. Guests can gain access to an exclusive VIP lounge where they can have drink next to a tarantula and other creepy crawlies by texting the SMS code “nature3” to 12321.Special food stations and bars will be available where partiers can grab a quick bite and drink. In the glass lantern area, guests can dance from 8:00 PM to midnight to an eclectic mix of tunes spun by Ottawa’s DJ TDot. On the science discovery side, three young museum botanists who travelled the Soper River on Baffin Island by canoe will set up camp in the museum to share their Arctic adventures from recent field trips. While the event is being promoted specifically to the 19 to 35 crowd, Nature Nocturne is open to all night-owls curious to see what the Museum has to offer after hours. Tickets are $20 each (tax included) and do not include food and beverages, which will be sold separately. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. The Canadian Museum of Nature is at 240 McLeod St, Ottawa. Follow the Museum on Twitter (@museumofnature) or like the Museum on Facebook. Visit nature.ca/nocturne.
