Pre-party at the Pizitz, cocktails at the museum and post-party at Moon Shine, Elyton Hotel’s rooftop bar. Art on the Rocks at the Birmingham Museum of Art makes for a super fun night, but here’s what really makes it rock. Get your tickets now for Friday, July 27, $25 for nonmembers and $15 for members.

1. Live Music

The Birmingham Museum of Art consistently knocks it out of the park when it comes to booking musical guests. Next up, Seratones.

Hailing from Shreveport, Louisiana, Seratones will bring its “Southern musicality, garage rock ferocity and general badassery” to Art on the Rocks on July 27. Buy tickets today.

2. Trendsetters

See an exclusive fashion show by Splashed by DKG, a luxury streetwear brand that’s local to Birmingham. Known for hand-constructed garments marked by bold, meticulously designed textiles, Splashed by DKG rocked Nashville Fashion Week in 2017 and 2018 and launched Magic City Fashion Week last fall.

“To popularize. To cause a stir. To make an impact. To make a SPLASH.”—Splashed by DKG

3. Interactive Mural Painting

Last June, we helped local artist John Lytle Wilson paint a new mural inside the museum. On July 27, we’ll pick up our paintbrushes again to help Blank Space Bham create its latest community mural.

The best part? You’ll be painting alongside acclaimed artist and Birmingham native Erin Mitchell!

4. Vinyl-Loving DJs

The legendary Seasick Records in Crestwood is providing the DJ. Count on the records spinning all evening long, indoors and out.

7. Artsy Scavenger Hunt

Did you know the Birmingham Museum of Art has over 27,000 artworks in its collection? The education department has planned an oh-so clever gallery hunt so we discover some of these wonders for ourselves.
