BECHTLER BY NIGHT

Art enthusiasts across the city of Charlotte have made #BechtlerByNight the premiere art event to look forward to the third Friday of every month. Friday, October 20, the Bechtler will provide a night of entertainment with Dia de los Muertos.

In October, celebrate Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) with the Bechtler collection. Get your face painted in sugar skull fashion in the lobby, and paint your own pumpkins in the second floor classroom. Take your first look at the latest fourth floor exhibition, Maestros Mexicans de la Fotografia Moderna, featuring some of the most stunning Mexican photographs in the collection.

Bechtler By Night lets you experience the museum galleries for free from 5-9 p.m. every third Friday of the month. Gather friends and view the extensive Bechtler collection under the cover of the night sky!
