Do you love beer? And art? Well it’s about time you mesh the two. Students and members of the community are invited to join the IU Art Museum in celebrating the mash-up of local microbreweries and a collection of beer-themed artwork. The museum’s first-ever fundraiser, Art on Tap, will take place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 14 in the museum’s outdoor Sculpture Terrace.
The event will offer guests the opportunity to sample local craft beers while also enjoying live music and entertainment by the sixties cover band The Vallures and the Kali Ma Fire Troupe. Beer will be provided by Bloomington Brewing Company, Cutters Brewing Company, and Upland Brewing Company. Oliver Winery will provide samples of their hard cider, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available as well. Food pairings will also be provided by One World Catering and Happy Pig Street Food. Have you tasted their mac n’ cheese? Well if not, it’s about time!
Tickets to the event cost $35 and can be purchased at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Box Office, IU Art Museum, Lennie’s Bloomington Brewing Company, and Upland Brewery/Restaurant. They are also available online at www.BCTBoxOffice.com.
And students, if you’re really feeling in the spirit, you can ever join the Art on Tap Street Team and volunteer! You must be 21 or older in order to volunteer. You’ll be responsible for helping to promote the event by hanging posters, handing out flyers and chalking. If you’re interested, contact Ann Fields, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you all there!
