The Art League has challenged five local mixologists to each select a juried piece of artwork from the October “Body Language” exhibit as inspiration for a new cocktail and then compete at Art on the Rocks. Tickets ($35 each) are now on sale!

Eventbrite - Art on the Rocks

Ticket holders sample and judge the artful cocktails while nibbling on appetizers from the restaurants, enjoying our October exhibits, and swaying to live jazz music by the Gassmann Duo. Attendees will select the best cocktail of the evening and crown the winning mixologist of Art on the Rocks. A panel of experts including a representative from Catoctin Creek Distillery and Jenn Larsen, the editor-in-chief of WeLoveDC.com who writes about art, theater, and cocktails, will select the mixologist who whipped up the most creative libation – the one that best reflects the chosen artwork.

Mixologists include representatives from BastilleChadwicksColumbia Firehouse, The Light Horse Restaurant, and Union Street Public House.

Drawings for Art League prizes (like tickets to the coveted annual Patrons’ Show) will also be a part of the evening. Ticket holders will also receive a $20 voucher from Lyft for a safe ride.

Proceeds benefit The Art League’s outreach programming, including the Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund, a Space of Her Own (SOHO), and IMPART.
