Let’s party, baby.

Join the party at Art After Dark: a FREE soirée featuring fine art, live music, refreshments, and more celebrating the opening of the MOA’s latest exhibition: European Splendors: Old Master Paintings from the Kress Collection! We’ll be serenaded by special musical guest John Allred, enjoy several gallery and art activities, try gourmet Italian refreshments, and get our first glimpse at the Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces in the new exhibition. Art After Dark has everything you need to enjoy fine art with friends, family, or on your own alongside hundreds of other art lovers.

All are welcome and registration is not required. Casual dress.
