Special Event

Harvard Art Museums
32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

Join us for an evening of art, fun, food, and more! This event is free and open to everyone. This month’s gathering is extra special because we’ll be celebrating the opening of our exhibition Dare to Know: Prints and Drawings in the Age of Enlightenment.

The evening will feature exhibition-related activities. Tours will be available in the galleries throughout the night. Bring your friends to mingle in the Calderwood Courtyard, chat over a snack or drink at Jenny’s Cafe, browse the shop, and of course, wander the galleries to take in our world-class collections of art, all set to the smooth sounds of DJ C-Zone. The featured local vendors are Castle Island Brewing Company and Carolicious Venezuelan Food.

Also be sure to check out the recently opened exhibition Funerary Portraits from Roman Egypt: Facing Forward.

After you’ve browsed the galleries, circle back to see what’s happening in the courtyard.

Harvard Art Museums at Night takes place the last Thursday of every month, from 5 to 9pm.

Each night will feature a new mix of local talent and community partners to make this a festive occasion for all.

Advance reservations are encouraged, but walk-in visitors are always welcome. Please note that space may be limited due to capacity. Reservations are available two weeks before the event.
