First Friday Art After Hours
January 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Enjoy free admission to the Cape Ann Museum every First Friday from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Each month, CAM partners with Rockport Brewing Co for a free beer tasting and with a practicing, contemporary artist to interpret the Museum’s collections. Enjoy a taste of local beer and watch art come to life through dance, music, performance, painting, and more.
This January, the Museum will be filled with lights, music, and dance start the New Year. Our DJs, Zach and Jason, bring a unique and fully analogue listening experience with their selection of obscure and forgotten records. They are behind various past events on the North Shore, such as Down the Tracks, Mondo A Go Go and occasionally sitting in as members of Salem Funk Club. With their tireless pursuit of the coolest and most obscure sounds, their record collections combined make for one of the most diverse soundscapes you can imagine. They dare you to resist the urge to dance!
At 6:00 pm, Sarah Swift from MAGMA (Movement Arts, Gloucester, MA) will lead a New Year Warm Up to kick start the evening’s ongoing dance party in the CAM Auditorium. Dancers from MAGMA’s residency with choreographer Heather Stewart will perform in the galleries throughout the evening. Heather Stewart is the Director of little house dance based in Portland, Maine.
Free tastings will be provided courtesy of Rockport Brewing Co. to all attendees 21+.
