November 2 (Saturday)
6 till 9 p.m.

The Allentown Art Museum’s signature fall fundraising event, Cocktails & Collecting, features access to an extraordinary array of emerging artists, great art (to buy!), delicious food and signature drinks, killer music, and a must-attend afterparty.

New this year, we’ve invited a special emcee to bring her own art-forward spin to the event: Kate Hughes, gallery director of Bethlehem House Gallery (shown below plucking grapes from a Museum painting at last year’s C&C).


DJ Brad Scott will be spinning vinyl again this year, playing the best sounds of the past through the present.
