Art & Absinthe
Fridays, March 13, April 10, and May 8, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
The Frick Art Museum
Beginning Friday, March 13, join The Frick Pittsburgh, Wigle Whiskey, and our favorite female DJs for an evening of jewels, jams, and spirits at The Frick Art Museum. Inspired by our exhibition of early twentieth-century art jewelry and the progressive women who engendered these gems, we're serving the turn-of-the-century bohemian's favorite beverage. Witness the elegant drip of an absinthe fountain, learn about the controversial drink linked with artists and writers for decades, view dazzling jewels in our exhibition galleries, and mingle with The Green Fairy (literally, she'll be here). Jewelry adornment is encouraged! Learn more!
