Join us for an evening celebrating the best things in life. Bask in summer’s glow, and enjoy outdoor gardens, music, art-making, and friends.

This lively, social evening features music, creative collaborators, a cash bar, playful gallery activities, and hands-on art making. Hungry? Café G will be open for snacks, dinner, and drinks.

We have an exciting evening planned, in connection with the Life, Death & Revelry exhibition—especially the revelry.

Program for the Evening

Music in the Courtyard
Led by saxophonist and composer Jonathan Suazo, SUAZ3 mixes musical styles such as rock, R&B, hip-hop, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms to create a refreshing sound full of emotion, energy, and powerful melodies.

Gallery Games
Start a conversation with a friend, or soon-to-be-friend, with a party-inspired "cootie catcher." Fold the pattern, head to the galleries, and let the games begin!

In the Studio: Elixir of Life
Reflect on your personal party vibe while mixing an elixir of botanical concentrates. Design a label for your concoction, then take it home to add to a cocktail or mock-tail, and share!

Gallery Talks
Learn about Isabella and the Gardner Museum. Then take a closer look at the ancient Roman coffin featured in the special exhibition Life, Death & Revelry.
