Gardner After Hours: Blueprint

Thursday, December 16, 2010Gardner After Hours season 4 square
5:30pm - 9:30pm

Join us After Hours on the third Thursday of each month for a new kind of night out. Gardner After Hours is music, art, conversation, cocktails, and more in an inviting atmosphere.

Isabella Gardner’s palace takes on an otherworldly beauty after dark, when starry skies and moonlight contribute to its magic. Linger in the cloisters or around the courtyard, explore or sketch in the galleries, discover new exhibitions, revel in live music, sample the culinary fare in The Gardner Café. Cash bar but the atmosphere is on us. 

Tonight: Blueprint
Blueprints old and new… Discover the Gardner's building project tonight and see if you can envision what Gardner After Hours will be like once the project is complete!

With a special After Hours PLUS program at 7pm:  three scenes (variation one)
Contemporary Performance with Adam Pendleton
 (After Hours PLUS tickets required.)


Under the Covers @ After Hours: Learn more about Isabella Stewart Gardner's rare editions of Dante in informal talks with Mellon Curatorial Fellow Anne-Marie Eze (Titian Room; 6:30 and 7:30pm).

Museum Making: Explore the museum--and learn more about the new Renzo Piano-designed wing--on an all-new gallery game.

We hate to say goodbye (even temporarily!), but Gardner After Hours is taking a brief hiatus for 2011 as the museum prepares for the opening of its new Renzo Piano-designed wing in early 2012 . Join us this fall to send After Hours off in style!
