Event Description

Enjoy happy hour from the comfort of your own screen via Facebook Live! We’ll start the program with a cocktail demonstration featuring local bar Proper. The bartenders will show us how to make a unique cocktail based on Ruth Asawa’s Untitled sculpture. After we make our drinks, Carter Community Artist Kalee Appleton will lead us in creating a yarn vase inspired by the sculpture.

Limited cocktail and art-making kits are available for free for the first 50 registrants. All kits need to be picked up from the Carter; we will not ship supplies.
