SHORT NIGHT

An evening full of art, music, wine and antique cars

Already for the 16th time, the museums, galleries and institutions of Wiesbaden invite to visit their exhibitions for free on April 16th, 2016. It starts at 5.30 pm at the Thalhaus. Here, the evening will be started by Rose Lore Scholz, the head of the culture department of Wiesbaden, and by Erhard Witzel, the organizer of the “Short Night”.

Following that, between 7 pm and midnight, people can visit numerous exhibitions for free: The museum Wiesbaden devoted the special exhibition “Seniors Celebration” to Thomas Bayrle. In the Wiesbaden show house, the first museum exhibition of the painter, graphic and video artist existed as early as 50 years ago – reason enough to celebrate the anniversary. The Nassauische Kunstverein NKV shows the group exhibition “My castle is my home”, curated by Helga Schmidhuber, and in the Women’s Museum, one can gaze at “Knitted Hi(stories)”. Here, visitors can participate in express guided tours through the exhibitions at 8 pm and 9.30 pm. In the Active Museum Spiegelgasse, during the “Short Night” is the last chance to see the show “Hate Smearings, Photographed and Destroyed”.

But the galleries of Wiesbaden open their gates as well and show what they understand as art. If it is “Sport and Machines” in the gallery Pokusa, “Color Worlds” in the gallery Rother-Winter or “Wiesbaden: Impressions” in the photograph gallery Wiesbaden – the program is colorful, diverse and varied, just like art is.

Like every year, there is an extensive accompanying program: Different VDP wineries from the Rheingau offer tastings at 13 stations and thus provide for the guest’s culinary needs. The net proceeds from these tastings will be donated to the Thalhaus for an exhibition project in the following year. The musical supporting program is provided for by Wiesbaden’s PopJazzChor with clever harmonies and riveting rhythms.

Another highlight, which is already known from last year, is the antique car shuttle service. The Rolling Museum provided 100 antique cars again, which drive through the city the whole night and bring visitors to one of five stops for free.

The evening ends where it started: at 11.30 pm, the large final party starts at the Thalhaus.
