From Friday’s Weekend Look section of The Oklahoman.
UPDATE: According to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Web site (www.okcmoa.com), Art on Tap has sold out for tonight. In addition, the museum is reporting via Twitter (@OKCMOA) that because of the cold and rainy weather, the Stella Artois Rooftop Beer Garden has moved from the museum’s roof terrace to the Museum Cafe. However, the roof terrace still will be open for those unafraid of braving the elements.
Museum to host sixth annual Art on Tap beer-tasting event
Along with celebrating the opening of a new exhibit, Oklahoma City Museum of Art will present its sixth annual Art on Tap beer-tasting event from 7 to 10 tonight throughout the museum’s ground-floor lobbies and on its roof terrace.
Art on Tap will feature about 80 domestic and imported beers from around the world. Hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants, including the Museum Cafe, Abobe Adobe Grill Gourmet Mexicano, McNellie’s Public House and Old Germany Restaurant, will offer an assortment of flavors to complement any beer.
Bruce Benson will provide live music on the roof terrace at the Stella Artois Rooftop Beer Garden, sponsored by Premium Beers of Oklahoma.
The museum’s galleries will be open for viewing, including the first-floor special exhibitions gallery, where “The Dutch Italianates: 17-century Masterpieces From Dulwich Picture Gallery, London” opened Thursday.
The annual event has been growing in popularity; last year’s Art on Tap sold out.
Tickets are available in advance only and can be bought before 5 p.m. today at the museum’s admissions desk. Tickets cost $45 for museum members or $50 for nonmembers.
