Dallas Museum of Art presents Speakeasy
DMA Members and the Dallas community are invited to dress to kill in their best roaring '20s attire for a Prohibition-era speakeasy party. The main event will take place in the Hamon Atrium, featuring craft cocktails, delicious nibbles, live entertainment from the 18-piece band, the Singapore Slingers, dance tutorials of '20s-era dances with professionals from The Rhythm Room, gaming tables, and a photo booth. Celebrity blogger Jane Aldridge, from the Sea of Shoes blog, will judge and present awards for the best-dressed dames and daddies.
For cool cats and kittens, the exclusive VIP Hideaway located in the Focus One Gallery will have an open bar, premier seating, a complimentary ROXOR Gin Garden, savory and sweet bites, private gaming tables, jazz-age hits with a twist, dedicated dance instructors, and more.
All attendees will enjoy a visit to Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail. This special exhibition, presented by ROXOR Artisan Gin, examines the art and culture of the cocktail through the wares in which they were prepared and served. On view through November 12, 2017, Shaken, Stirred, Styled follows the development of the modern cocktail from the late 19th century to the present day, tracing the stylistic reflections of the rituals of the cocktail’s preparation, presentation, and consumption. Drawn primarily from the DMA’s collection of decorative arts and design, the exhibition features a range of objects, many of which are on view for the first time.
