Not your typical exhibition opening, Culture Pop! connects guests with the artists and the art itself. In addition to being among the first to see new exhibitions, guests also enjoy live music, poetry readings, complimentary food & cash bar with fine wines, craft beer and more. Artists open their studios and interact with guests who get a unique glimpse of the A&H campus after nightfall.
