Second Thursdays at the Carter: Games & Gab
Join us every second Thursday to connect with art through cocktails, conversations, and creativity. This month indulge your competitive side and explore the collection with games in the galleries.
Gather in the Atrium for Mad Libs, mazes, and a Carter-original game inspired by Gabriel Dawe’s Plexus no. 34. Enjoy drinks and snacks available for purchase. Carter members get one complimentary drink!
Check out a special viewing in the Library of documentary photographs taken during the fun and games at this year’s Sonidos del Summer concert series at Marine Park by members of Northside MBK (My Brother’s Keeper).
Decorate drink coasters to take home and use during your own game nights with family and friends. Supplies limited to the first 200 people.
Choose your own adventure in the galleries by picking up a self-guided tour of the collection from the Info Desk.
