Since 2011, CAMafterhours has brought art and culture lovers (21 and over) into the Museum after regular hours for engaging programming, food, drink and performance. From dance presentations to sound installations, artist talks and whiskey tastings, past events have attracted Museum members and nonmembers alike. On Friday, January 27, the tradition continues, taking inspiration from the current special exhibition Voicing the Woods: Jeremy Adams, Instrument Maker.
CAM invites you to join in interactive games in the Museum’s galleries, sip local beverages and enjoy a dance performance by artist Dawn Pratson. CAM After Hours is for meeting and mingling with other creative adults, experiencing the Museum in a more personal way.
