During Art After Dark, guests can tour the current exhibitions: Personal to Political: Celebrating the African American Artists of Paulson Fontaine Press, Under the Kern County Sky: Prapat Sirinavarat, and Exploring the Figure: Selections from BMoA’s Permanent Collection.

Guests can also enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and mocktails by Tiki Ko, a live DJ set from 4KJ, and participate in an art project inspired by the exhibitions.

“For our Spring Art After Dark, we always like to connect the experience with our current exhibitions,” says Rachel Wainwright, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at BMoA. “At this Art After Dark.” 

She continued, “We encourage guests to see how the artists’ personal narratives inform their work, and how guests’ own narratives influence their own creative process.”
