People will be seeing rouge (as in Moulin Rouge) at the annual Color Party on Saturday night at the Wichita Art Museum. The WAM Contemporaries – the art museum’s under-50 social crowd – are throwing the party to support the museum. The 8-to-11 p.m. event includes food, drink, music and dancing girls. Tickets are $140 online at wamcolorparty.com or by calling 316-268-4912. Oh, and be sure to dress in a shade of rouge.
