Virtual Cocktails & Collections
Every 3rd Thursday of the month, join us for a virtual Cocktails & Collections 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: Women’s Work: A Survey of Female Photographers with Dr. Jane Aspinwall, Curator of Photography
Signature cocktail — Tequila Sunrise (Get the recipe here)
Dr. Jane Aspinwall’s curatorial experience is comprehensive and diverse, with achievements such as major publications that have added new scholarship to the field; a wide variety of significant traveling exhibitions; and years of experience in working with donors and collectors to build a world-class collection. In addition, she has always been at the forefront of innovations in collection accessibility and care. Aspinwall is a renowned expert in 19th-century photography and her most recent project, Golden Prospects: Daguerreotypes of the California Gold Rush stands as the definitive source on the subject. A long proponent of lesser known and 1 of 2 underrepresented artists, Aspinwall is committed to studying and showing work by women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and non-Western photographers. Aspinwall holds a PhD and MA in the History of Art and Humanities (University of Missouri-Kansas City) and an MBA in Arts Management (University of Missouri-Columbia).
