▪ The Cross Hatch, an interactive space for all ages.

▪ Food and refreshments available for purchase from A Peace of Soul Vegan Kitchen, Los Chicanos Food Truck, Smokey Loggins, and Curiosity Coffee Bar.

▪ A cash bar from The Whig featuring beer from Cayce’s Steel Hands Brewing including golden ale, IPA, and coffee lager.

▪ Live music from the Boomtown Waifs, King Vulture, and Dumb Doctors, with DJ sets from DJ Siji.

▪ A pop-up arcade courtesy of Transmission Arcade.

▪ Unique perspective tours of the collection and Mimi Kato: Ordinary Sagas with Subpar Magazine’s Shigeharu Kobayashi.
