After Party

Saturday, September 29, 7:30-9:30pm

We're celebrating our 35th Anniversary with a special late night After Party at the museum. A ticket will get you into the party to enjoy: 

  • Live music from jazz guitarist Ken Ormes of Boston
  • Desserts galore: cupcakes provided by Three Sisters Cake Shop; cannoli provided by Terra Cotta Pasta, mini cupcakes provided by Paints & Pans, chocolate truffles provided by Lickee's & Chewy's Candies & Creamery, and more delicious from Chapel + Main.
  • Complimentary libations from Tuscan Kitchen, Garrison City Beerworks, and Chapel + Main
  • Coffee provided by Flight
  • A live auction of a handful of art works that are being reserved from our Gallery 6 art exhibition "35 Friends: 35 Years of Art and Creativity." Artworks range from two cat sculptures from the popular "Cats of Mrs. Calamari" exhibit, to larger than life colorful abstract paintings by local artist Sam Paolini. 
  • An art raffle will also be available for the other 29 works of art on view, not part of the live auction. For only $5 anyone can purchase a sheet of 20 raffle tickets to win an original work of art. This will be the last chance to bid on this art. We will be drawing winning raffle tickets on Sunday, September 30 at 2pm at the Children's Museum.

Tickets are $25 in advance. Tickets are available online through noon on Friday, September 28. $35 tickets are available at the door.
