Bechtler By Night: Brand New Year

Bechtler By Night: Brand New Year

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
Friday, January 17 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

New Year's is a time to reflect, rejoice and look forward to what life has in store, just around the corner! Start your new year at the Bechtler and create your very own Winter Watercolor Painting in our classroom or design unique snowflakes in the lobby as you sip on a whiskey sour!

The artwork on view at the Bechtler is meant to be shared with the entire community, and the museum delivers on that commitment by opening the galleries for free to the public every third Friday of the month, from 5-9 p.m. Combine that with interactive art activities, games, live entertainment and a full bar and you’ve got Bechtler By Night! There will be a bar serving wine, beer, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages and complimentary light bites!

Gather friends and view the extensive Bechtler collection under the cover of the night sky.
