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.
Celebrating A&H’s Artist-in-Residence Program
A&H’s Maitland Art Center
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see pieces by one of the most well-noted American Contemporary artists, Milton Avery while we honor the legacy of the A&H’s Maitland Art Center as an artist colony. Decades after Avery conducted two residencies, American artists Elysia Mann and Marydorsey Wanless lived on the Art Center’s campus while experimenting with their unique artistic approaches. Artwork by Milton Avery on loan from the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation in New York.
