Despite the day of rain, the After Hours party at the Hirshhorn could not be stopped. Guests got in some late-night gallery wandering before heading to the courtyard for drinks, music and the world premier of Peter Glantz‘s memorable performance, The World. The film and theater director took the crowd on a magical journey, after first verifying that everyone in attendance was, indeed, in favor of fun.
