Cocktail with a Curator: David Acton, the Milly and Fritz Kaeser Curator of Photographs

-

Location: Online via Zoom

Let’s mix things up! Join us for Cocktail with a Curator, a program that toasts amazing works of art with deliciously themed cocktails. This month, spend time with David Acton, the Milly and Fritz Kaeser Curator of Photographs, looking closely at the albumen print Oscar Wilde by Napoleon Sarony. We encourage you to enjoy a cocktail created by Rohr's bartenders to complement the artwork; if the themed cocktail isn’t to your taste, please join us with a beverage of your choice.

Register to attend here. The cocktail recipe and a video on how to make it will be emailed prior to the program.

This program will take place on Zoom and is designed to be interactive. There will be opportunities for conversation and questions. Video is highly encouraged.

You must have a Zoom account to register for this program. Don't have Zoom? Sign up for free here.
