Deets: This spring the National Gallery of Art's popular Evenings at the Edge series will honor the contributions of women artists as well as the exhibitions Oliver Lee Jackson: Recent Paintings and The Life of Animals in Japanese Art. Each program will showcase live music and dance performances, hands-on art making, and other activities throughout the iconic East Building, free of charge. The spring 2019 Evenings at the Edge will be on the second Thursday of each month—March 14, April 11, and May 9—from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Take a walk on the wild side during the final Evenings at the Edge of the 2018–2019 season. Talks, activities, and performances are inspired by the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition The Life of Animals in Japanese Art. Expand your linguistic repertoire with Speed Japanese lessons, explore how animals have captivated artists throughout history and across cultures, and celebrate Japanese culture with performances and art-making stations. The evening's themed cocktail, the Ryokucha Dream, features yuzu, green tea, and honey.

Performers and other details of each event remain subject to change.

Hint for the Average Socialite: The event is FREE, but pre-registration is REQUIRED!
