At 9 p.m. July 11, join local artists in the ISI Group as they turn Beauty Bar’s backyard into a graffiti art gallery. In Off the Wall, DJs will complement the art with a hip-hop, funk and soul soundtrack. It’s like a real-life version of your favorite ’80s rap video! TheBeautyBar.com.


Through July 12, science and art come together at Cosmopolitan’s P3Studio in Colorphilia, A Color Laboratory. The interactive exhibition by Patterson Beckwith and Amy Gartrell explores how color can be both a subjective experience and objective feature via a variety of activities.

Dirty Dancing goes from screen to stage July 14-19 at The Smith Center. Witness Baby and Johnny fall in love while singing and dancing to classic hits from the film including “Hungry Eyes” and “Hey Baby.” We can’t wait to see the final dance set to “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” firsthand.
