Aliens In D.C. Scavenger Hunt
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
View the sites that intrigued Ellen Harvey’s alien visitors with an interactive scavenger hunt through some of DC’s most notable landmarks. Grab a partner or form a team (each individual must register separately; children under 12 are free with the purchase of an adult ticket) and begin at the Corcoran any time between 5:00 and 9:00 p.m.
Families can chose a hunt designed specifically with children in mind that includes alien themed activities involving chalk drawing and spaceships. For the young professional set, photo opportunities and social media sharing will be the focus of the hunt, with planned bar stops and happy hour drink specials offered along the route. Roving Corcoran "aliens" will be stationed through the route to assist in collaborative projects and provide inspiration for fun photo shoots.
Special prizes, including Corcoran memberships, brunch at Todd Gray's Muse, and a classic alien treat -- Moon Pies! -- await participants at the Corcoran once they complete the hunt. The exhibition will also be open for viewing before and after the hunt.
