Bound to be the bee’s knees!

Now is your chance to experience The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in a new light—one reminiscent of the most glamorous of speakeasies and vibrant of jazz dens. Dance the night away (might we recommend the Charleston?) in Art Deco splendor that’ll make you think the party never stopped and probably never will.

Your ticket to Party Arty includes:

  • An Art Deco-inspired, multi-sensory performance by Quixotic Cirque Nouveau
  • Live painting experience by local artists from the African American Artists Collective
  • Early access to the exhibition American Art Deco: Designing for the People, 1918-1939
  • Specialty cocktails from Tom’s Town Distilling Co.
  • Beer from City Barrel
  • Multiple bars to keep the beer, wine, and specialty cocktails flowing
  • Photo ops to capture your glad rags
  • Concretes from Shake Shack to end the night
  • Take-home chocolates from Russell Stover
  • A one-of-a-kind party you won’t forget!
