Typical art museum opening hours aren’t conducive to a kick-starting a Friday night out musing over art with a cocktail in hand; Art After Dark allows culture-thirsty 9-5ers the opportunity to pore over exquisite special exhibits and live music for free after normal hours. A cash bar will dish out cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. This week, the Chris Comer Trio performs Contemporary Jazz to set the backdrop of special exhibition Impressions of Venice, open for viewing from 6-8 p.m. Final Fridays. Free; parking is $4. 5-9 p.m. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams. cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
