It felt like everyone in Birmingham was there, but in case you missed it, here’s a recap of the event:
The AOTR events this summer were Japanese-themed to celebrate the newest exhibit– Lethal Beauty: Samurai Weapons and Armor. Normally $10 admission, this exhibit was included with AOTR tickets. Down the hall was a station with typewriters and paper for guests to make paper cranes and Hipster Haikus. We had fun creating three-line poems on the vintage typewriters. The food was also Asian-inspired and included iconic Chinese takeout boxes for the lettuce wraps.
Seasick Records provided the tunes in the food area, while Charlotte-based band Matrimony performed out in the courtyard later that evening. Throughout the evening, Watch Your Mouth presented the first ever spoken word exhibit in the European Galleries. Plus, all of the other galleries, including the famous Wedgewood were open that evening. There was also an edible display by Pastry Art Bake Shoppe in Homewood, Giant Jenga, giveaways from Bromberg’s jewelry, and a Light Paint Photo Booth. If you are a Junior Patron, you received VIP treatment in the courtyard with special Fuzzy Belly Beer (blend of Frecklebelly IPA and Paw Paw’s Peach Wheat) and 80 Pops.
The Art Museum really knows how to party! Can’t wait to check out more events! Every time I’m there, I realize how fortunate Birmingham is to have such a great museum with many world-renown pieces. If you haven’t been lately, spend a day there– general admission is FREE!
