Especially when one is speaking of an ARTINI! This spring, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design’s 1869 Society presents the fifth annual ARTINI. This special March long event celebrates the 20th year of ArtReach, the Corcoran’s community art program providing high-quality visual arts education for local community youth. Throughout the month of March, 12 of the city’s most creative mixologists compete to make the most artistic martini inspired by works in the Corcoran collection. The celebration culminates at the ARTINI cocktail party on Saturday, March 31, 2012 from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are on sale now.
