Bechtler By Night: Splash into Summer
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
FRIDAY, JULY 20 FROM 5 - 9 P.M.
BECHTLER BY NIGHT
The artwork on view at the Bechtler is meant to be shared with the entire community, and the museum delivers on that commitment by opening the galleries for free to the public every third Friday of the month. Combine that with interactive art activities, games, live entertainment and a full bar and you’ve got Bechtler By Night!
Mark your calendars for July's edition of Bechtler By Night: Splash Into Summer! Beat the heat by stepping inside the cool air of the Bechtler galleries and unleashing your creative energy. Make a custom magnet in the Bechtler lobby, geometric paintings in the second-floor classroom, or test your eagle eyes with Bechtler Bingo. Finally, win fantastic Bechtler prizes by showing off your knowledge of the museum, the artworks on view, and the city of Charlotte by playing Bechtler trivia. There will be two sessions of Bechtler trivia, one at 6 and one at 7:30, live in the Bechtler lobby. It's free to play!
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!
