Exciting news alert! The National Constitution Center is teaming up with Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction for a limited time exhibit, Art in the Age of Prohibition. The exhibit is in conjunction with the NCC’s popular exhibit, American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.
Art in the Age of Prohibition will display a collection of elements unique to Philadelphia that played key roles in Prohibition in the City of Brotherly Love. Look out for people, places, photography, artwork and more. The exhibit opens on January 22 and will be located at Art in the Age in Old City, did we mention it’s a free exhibit!?
Illustrations by Hawk Krall, a Philadelphia based artist and writer will be on display as well.
There will be plenty of events for all to enjoy during the duration of this exhibit. Learn about prohibition cocktails, Philadelphia’s bootleggers, the production of alcohol during the time, and more.
Celebrate this awesome collaboration at Art in the Age’s opening reception on Friday, February 1 (also coinciding with First Friday!) from 6-8 p.m. Kick off the event with cocktails, artwork and prohibition history!
As if this exhibit could get any cooler, Art in the Age will offer complimentary hot cider to American Spirits ticket holders and The National Constitution Center will offer discounts for Art in the Age attendees. Lucky for us, the National Constitution Center and Art in the Age are located mere blocks apart. Can you say perfect weekend activities?
