Join us as we look back at the experiential artwork from the 1920s that may have inspired some of the very first Happenings. Guests will take a step back in time and enjoy cocktails, dinner by-the-bite, and a night in the museum in their Roaring Twenties best. 

Specialty Cocktails provided by New Riff Distillery 

Music by the Bluewater Kings Band 

Live Performances by Pones, Poems While You Wait, and more! 

All proceeds from A Happening will empower the museum to bring more dynamic art exhibitions, such as Beyond Bollywood, coming in fall of 2022, and Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds, coming in spring of 2023, to Cincinnati. 

Guests must be 21 to attend.
