Night at the Museum with Larkspur, Jenni Martiniello and Amrita Hepi
$5 non-members, FREE for museum members
Join us for Night at the Museum, your opportunity to explore our exhibitions after hours and enjoy the best food, libations and music in Charlottesville! In September we’re featuring beer from Blue Mountain Brewery, wine from Glass House Winery, and a few of Charlottesville’s best food trucks. Larkspur will deliver their mellow bluegrass tunes, Aboriginal artist Jenni Kemarre Martiniello will be present for the opening of her new exhibition Freshwater Saltwater Weave and Indigenous dancer Amrita Hepi will perform during the band’s break. This event also has a Kids Zone with Australian-themed children’s activities, as well as a Flat Chat Tour, a ten-minute discussion about an artwork on view by a museum staff member. And all of it happens outside at our beautiful location on Pantops, one of the best hidden spots to watch the sunset in Charlottesville.
Please note: Consider bringing lawn chairs, as seating is limited. The food trucks and winery sell directly, beer and cider are purchased from the museum. Credit cards are accepted at all vendors. Parking is available in the large fields off of Worrell Drive facing Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital; please leave the circular driveway free for handicapped individuals, and please do not park along the driveway to Worrell Investments.
