Once a month, on the third Friday of the month, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, in conjunction with Bank of America, presents Bechtler by Night. Admission will be free from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be special gallery tours, art-making activities and scavenger hunts.
#BechtlerByNight occurs every third Friday of the month (with the occasional exception.)
This month, unleash your inner artist and create an autumn masterpiece with the aid of our specially-trained teaching artist who will guide you through the process! There are two one-hour sessions at 6 or 8 p.m in the second-floor classroom. Each session is $20.00.
Reserve your session below.
Performing on stage in the lobby, guests can listen to the band, up/dn (United People/ Doing Nothing) a music collective of three artists – Dave Haire, Chris Walters, and Ryan Persaud. Brought together by pure love for what machines can create alongside a plethora of instrumental talent this insatiable wave of artists strive to push boundaries and exude passion through their every pore.Visuals provided by Mike Todd.
The artwork on view at the Bechtler is meant to be shared with the entire community, and the museum delivers on that commitment by opening the galleries for free to the public every third Friday of the month. Combine that with interactive art activities, games, live entertainment and a full bar and you’ve got Bechtler By Night!
Bechtler By Night lets you experience the museum galleries for free from 5-9 p.m. every third Friday of the month, with an extra magic hour this month dedicated to the performance of up/dn and Mike Todd.
Gather friends and view the extensive Bechtler collection under the cover of the night sky!
