The Cincinnati Art Museum took inspiration from the Spanish word “playa,” which translates to beach, for this month’s Art After Dark after-hours cocktail party.
The word is also used to describe the dry lake beds in the American West — including those at Black Rock Desert, home to the annual Burning Man event, inspiration for the current interactive and somewhat psychedelic museum exhibit No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man.
During Art After Dark, take advantage of the free admission to No Spectators as well as Kimono: Refashioning Contemporary Style, plus enjoy live music from The Cliftones and food for purchase from Eli’s BBQ, Graeter’s Ice Cream and Macaron Bar.
5-10 p.m. Friday, July 26. Free admission. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams, cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
