Creative Cocktail Attire
Presented by the Corcoran’s 1869 Society, ARTINI is a vibrant evening of art, cocktails, entertainment, and dancing. From February through March, mixologists from the area’s top venues compete to create the most artistic martini. These specifically created artinis are inspired by works in the Corcoran’s collection. The city’s favorite artini, as chosen via online vote, will be revealed at the gala. Take a look back at last year’s event here.
