in Events

Looking for a sweet night out? Make plans now for Date Night at the Museum on Thursday, May 5, 2022, from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

This special after-hours event offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the museum during twilight hours. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a dessert reception while taking in the museum’s atrium featuring breath-taking Navajo Weavings, bronze sculptures by Frederic Remington and Hermon Atkins MacNeil, and Dorothy Doughty’s porcelain American birds. Visit the special exhibition “Enlarging the View: Contemporary Photography & Connections” to see new acquisitions and pairings of historical works and contemporary photography from the museum’s collection. And don’t miss your chance to explore this year’s eighth annual juried student art exhibition, “JUXTAPOSED”, featuring original works of art created by area student artists.

Admission to this event is FREE through the generous support of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation.

Continue your date night downtown and head over to the Lutcher Theater for the 7:30 p.m. performance of Waitress. Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county – and a satisfying encounter with someone new – show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
