Art After 5 . Free after admission. Friday evenings take on a whole new groove with Art After 5, a unique blend of entertainment from 5:00–8:45 p.m.**.
With an eclectic mix of international music on the first Friday of each month, and recognized and emerging jazz artists performing all other Fridays, it’s a stylish way to start your weekend. The Great Stair Hall is transformed into an intimate cabaret for Art After 5 performances. Starr Events serves up fun, sharable snacks and light supper options, as well as cocktails, wine and beer to compliment the live entertainment. Relax at a table with waiter service or stop by the bar.
Admission to the museum is $20 for adults, $18 for Seniors (65 & over). "This covers access for two consecutive days to main Museum building, Perelman Building, Rodin Museum, and Historic House Mount Pleasant." So, you could come tonight and then come back on Saturday and not pay extra for Saturday.
