The final event of the season, it will showcase the Museum's dramatic back plaza with the KCRW-sponsored DJ Jason Bentley. Nights is a cultural cocktail of art, live music, specialty martinis, and outrageous one-night-only interactive happenings. The September event will feature hors d'oeuvres sponsored by Duo Events, wine provided by The Brander Vineyard, beer generously donated by Karl Strauss Brewery, and the event's signature cocktail, The Dharma Bums Sauza Margarita. Trademark outrageous art activities and performances at Nights encourage creative play and redefine what it means to engage with art. The inspiration for the event's specifics was found in the Museum's permanent collection, with the works of artists such as Milton Avery, Salvador Dali, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Additionally, SBMA owns some spectacular Picasso drawings and prints, and is pleased to present this rich material in its entirety with the exhibition Picasso on Paper: Drawings and Prints from the Permanent Collection (1899-1967).
