Soliciting Prom Themes for "Zoe Strauss Night at the Whitney"

Because the feel of "Zoe Strauss night at the Whitney" will be more like a prom with presentations and discussion, as opposed to a turgid lecture, I am soliciting ideas for a theme.

The theme is always "Zoe Strauss," but what about just taking it a little further?
Of course, the ICA theme is "Philadelphia Freedom" and I don't know if that can be beat.

I have some theme ideas for Zoe Strauss Night at the Whitney.

"You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC is top of the list.

"You'll Never Walk Alone"
"You're All I Need to Get By"
"American Girl"

and of course
"Diving into the Wreck"

How bout...
"The Lavender Menace"
"The Battle of Blair Mountain"
"Escape to Witch Mountain"
"Close Encounters of the Third Kind"
"Manifest Destiny"

OR what's turning out to be the winner in my mind
"The Manhattan Project"

Manhattan Project could include so seen at the Levy opening, we could have manhattans served with dry ice dropped to the bottom.
how about a bikini "atoll" contest?
Or "Blacklisted!: a game of chance"
Polaroid photos could be taken in front of a giant blow up of the sedan crater or a replica of where the world's first plutonium core for a bomb was assembled, the McDonald ranch house.


Also let me know what you think about a color scheme ...I'm leaning toward white and silver.
