Art After Dark: Cats & Cocktails

Friday, June 24, 5pm – 9pm

Save the Date for our JUNE Art After Dark featuring the special exhibition, Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt. From domesticated cats to mythic symbols of divinity, felines played an important role in ancient Egyptian imagery for thousands of years. We will have a variety of special cat-themed cocktails available for purchase (for guests 21+). Wear attire inspired by cats such as leopard print, cat t-shirts or cat ears. Get creative and have fun! (No masks please). Enjoy live music from The Young Heirlooms in the Alice Bimel Courtyard from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and guided tours of Divine Felines at 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30 pm.

Videos are curated by Will Braden, the creator of the Henri Le Chat Noir videos and recipient of the festival’s first Golden Kitty (People’s Choice) Award. Free admission. First come first served.
