Hate to say it, but the gorgeous paintings at the Gardner Museum can be attention hogs. This month, to even things out a bit, we’re going to focus on some of the other dazzling works in the collection – like furniture and lace - that may get overlooked. Enjoy a drink and conversation by the courtyard, a hands-on project in the studio, and the chance to explore the museum at night.
Cash Bar featuring Zenzero | 5:30 pm-9 pm
Quench your thirst with a bubbly pear and ginger drink or stick with the classics: wine, beer, and sparkling water.
Studio Artivity: Leather | 6 pm-8:30 pm
Amazed by the exquisite leatherwork in the collection? Try your hand at a leather project of your own in the Education Studio.
DIY: Nasturtiums | 6 pm-8:30 pm
Take the magic of the Gardner Museum nasturtiums home with you! Plants, containers, materials and instruction will be provided.
Gallery Conversations | Throughout the evening
Join Gardner Museum staffers for short, informal chats in the galleries.
Made By Hand: Lace | 6:30 pm-8:30 pm
Pay a visit to Katherine Traylor, who learned to make lace while studying in Spain. Then take a peek at the lace in the collection – especially the Veronese Room!
Cash wine bar around the courtyard. Café G open for snacks, dinner, and drinks.
