Community Guest Bartender for Community Cause
On certain Mondays of each month The Ale and the Witch hands over the beer pouring to a local community member to become a guest bartender for a local cause. Raising funds for the community in a fun happy hour from 5-7 pm where folks gather around the traditional Public type house of the old days.
This particular Monday we welcome Robin O’Dell to pour you your beer or wine to help raise money for the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida. As stated by the owner, “We are blessed with such a fine museum right here downtown for not only locals to enjoy but travelers from all around the world to visit.”
Robin is a born and raised St. Petersburg local. She has been active in local organizations including stints as President of the Board of the Studio@620 and Secretary of the Downtown Neighborhood Association. Ms. O’Dell is currently the Curatorial Administrator and Manager of Photographic Collections at the Museum of Fine Arts where she is primarily responsible for organizing the various moving pieces for the installations and de-installations of exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts. As Manager of the Photographic Collections, she oversees the cataloguing, organizes the storage, selects and manages the installation of the photography gallery, and curates special exhibitions from the collections. With more than 15,000 images, the MFA has one of the finest photography collections in the Southeast.
The Museum of Fine Arts has an encyclopedic collection of art from around the globe and across the centuries, with almost 5,000 years of civilization represented by more than 20,000 objects extending from antiquity to the present. The collection includes works by Monet, Morisot, Pearlstein, DeKooning, O’Keeffe and many others, as well as ancient Greek and Roman, Asian, African, pre-Columbian and Native American art. The collection is the only comprehensive art collection of its kind on Florida’s west coast. Public support makes it possible for the MFA to present great works of art, offer education programs that change lives, and make the museum accessible to all people.
Join friends for this event and continue the converstaion on what is coming up at the Museum.
All tips and $1 from each item sold during the happy hours of 5-7 pm will be donated to the Museum. Donations are welcome, too, as the Museum will have a table set up here in the Gallery.
