Cocktails in Color at the Hunter Museum of American Art
The Hunter Museum of American Art has firmly established itself as the cultural hub on the riverfront, with a multitude of events and exhibits open to the public. This week, curators of the Hunter Art Museum and cocktail creators at the Flying Squirrel are teaming up once again to bring you an event that combines two of Chattanooga’s favorite things: art and alcohol. This Thursday, Flying Squirrel and the Hunter Art Museum present Cocktails in Color.
Bartenders from Flying Squirrel will choose a painting that speaks to them and create an inspired cocktail. Participants will get the opportunity to try at least one specialty drink while learning more about the exhibit. Any additional drinks can be purchased at the cash bar.
“We love being a part of this event,” Kaleena Goldsworthy from Flying Squirrel stated. “It is such a unique and fun way to bring the art and cocktail world together.” She adds, “On the night of the event, the museum does an exceptional job creating a discussion about the painting with all of the attendees, and then we explain our thoughts and how we went about creating the cocktail.”
In addition to the opportunity to see some of the Hunter’s best seasonal exhibits, participants get the chance to sample cocktails from a bar and restaurant renowned for its use of local, fresh ingredients to create delicious drinks.
