Come together and relive the Reagan years through art, music and fashion.

Wear your neon, shoulder pads, and stirrup pants for an evening that looks back on an oft-maligned decade. Start the night with a special ‘80s-themed edition of Conversationalist’s Café (6–8 pm) a project where strangers, friends, and guest artists share dialogue based on a menu of topics crafted around the era. Then check out the exhibition This Will Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s, during a curator-led tour (7–8 pm), and stick around as Jim Walsh (author of The Replacements: All Over But the Shouting: An Oral History) rounds up fellow musicians and artists who lived through this special time for a round of stories and songs with the Mad Ripple Hootenanny that harks back to a decade when CDs were the next big thing (8–10 pm).
