Culture & Cocktails returns to rock the museum

Have you ever experienced a silent disco while drinking pear cocktails inside an after-hours art exhibit? Now's your chance. The San Diego Museum of Art brings back the final Culture & Cocktails event of the year on Thursday, Nov. 5. The festivities aim to celebrate a combination of all things music, art and culture. The theme of the night will be The Art of Music, which is the museum's newest exhibit showcasing an exploration of the deep connection between the worlds of art and music. The bash will feature over 200 paintings, artifacts and instruments to explore - and that's not even the entirety of this epic museum party. Behold, the loudest event the museum has ever seen with tunes mixed by DJ Scott Roberts featuring live instruments. Enjoy a Tito's Handmade Vodka "pear-cussion" cocktail made with pear nectar, allspice dram and ginger sage syrup while you mosey around the gigantic exhibit. There will also be Saison tastings from Duckfoot Brewing and delicious treats to snack on from local hot spot, Blush Desserts. If all of the art that you witness inspires you to get creative, join in on the guitar pick jewelry-making session and make your own psychedelic-rock poster-inspired piece. The museum is also asking attendees to take part in the "Free the Art" campaign. Donations will aid an initiative to bring public art to Balboa Park, specifically the Art of the Open Air exhibit. This exhibit would bring eight sculptures from the San Diego Art Museum's vault to the Plaza de Panama for all to appreciate. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are free for members; $20 for nonmembers; $25 at the door.
