Come celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition and our nation’s founding with WOW—Wednesdays Over Water!
Join our Culinary team for a four-course, barbeque feast featuring handcrafted small plates, wine, and artistic insights into our free exhibition We the People: The Radical Notion of Democracy. Working with the museum’s curators and interpretation team, our culinary artists have created a unique menu of heightened BBQ presentations inspired by the exhibition and Independence Day, combining familiar traditions and techniques into an exercise in edible art. Come visit this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see an original copy of the US Constitution, then indulge in a relaxed evening of smoke and sauce.
Add in free-flowing pours of our favorite libations, a chance to celebrate with your fellow foodies, and spirited commentary by your culinary and curatorial hosts, and this evening promises to be a true feast for the senses.
Tickets are $79 + tax ($70 + tax for members), reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
