On the opening day of the exhibition David Bowie is, Sept. 25, 2013, admission to the exhibition is free for the first 200 people who come dressed up as Bowie between the hours of 6 to 8:30 p.m. We’re looking for Bowie-inspired makeup, costumes, fan gear — whatever says “Bowie” loud and clear. Show up decked out, mingle with Bowie impersonators and enjoy music by DJ Brittney Townson (of Bangs and Blush) and other surprises.*

Bowie is a style chameleon and has assumed so many personas — which one inspires you?

*Please note: public tickets for David Bowie is for the evening of Sept. 25 have sold out, so we cannot guarantee entry to the exhibition that night for everyone who dresses up (beyond the first 200).
