VIRTUAL Cocktails & Collections

Every 3rd Thursday of the month, join us for a live virtual event featuring art from the MFA’s special exhibitions and Collection galleries. Make an art-inspired signature cocktail ahead of time (we’ll provide the recipe), and enjoy a specially curated art tour from home!

Featured exhibition — From Margins to Mainstays: Highlights from the Photography Collection

This powerful exhibition features masterworks from the MFA’s photography collection that were made by artists whose careers and personal lives were sidelined, ignored, or impacted by their gender, race, sexuality, or nationality. From Margins to Mainstays illustrates how the canon of photography has changed since the medium first began being shown in museums in the 1940s, with particular emphasis on rectifying the small percentage of women and artists of color historically acquired by and displayed in public collections.

Signature cocktail — Lemon Basil Martini (Get recipe here)

Dr. Allison Moore specializes in contemporary African art and photography, exploring postcolonial, feminist, and aesthetic theories. She earned a Ph.D. in Art History from The Graduate Center, CUNY; an MA in Liberal Studies from Northwestern University, and an AB from Smith College.
