Electronic composer and party instigator Dan Deacon's career spans from the streets to the clubs to Carnegie Hall. His latest project, America, is a love letter and a call to action. In a New York Times profile, Deacon stated: "It's impossible to think about the land without the history of it, and that's a mixture of guilt and shame." Deacon brings his fluorescent creativity to the Met Museum with a new music/video piece, specifically created for the Charles Engelhard Court in the Met's American Wing. This once-in-a-lifetime performance, combining audience-triggered sound and light, video projection with live and electronic sounds, explores Dan's commitment to civic responsibility through the lens of innovative multimedia performance.

Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
