WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art is opening its doors after hours for a dance party to complement its newest exhibit, “African Cosmos: Stellar Arts.”

The Africa Underground “Beneath the Stars” party planned for Friday will include music by a DJ spinning beats from each region of Africa. The full museum will be open to visitors. It also includes cocktails and food from area restaurants featuring the African diaspora.

Beyond the party, organizers say guests can also help create a mural and join other activities.

Africa Underground is held four times a year. Tickets are available online for $35 in advance.
