What a midnight delight! UCLA’s Hammer Museum is hosting a “Dream-In” on May 1st:

Dreamers are invited to camp out in the Hammer courtyard and collect any dreams that occur during their stay. The evening will feature experimental dreaming workshops, concerts, and bedtime stories, followed by a waking concert in the morning, all facilitated by a dreamy batch of local artist-psychonauts. The following day museum patrons may encounter dream reenactments, workshops, and napping music during their visit.

The event is in honor of seminal psychoanalyst Carl Jung’s Red Book, currently on exhibition at the Hammer. Tucked away from the world in the deep recess of the Jungian archives until 2009, the Red Book is a long sought-after personal journal illustrated and written by the famed doctor between 1914 and 1930, detailing imaginary encounters with biblical prophets and slithering serpents. Here are a couple of the luscious psychedelic illustrations from the book:
