Description

Join us for “Acktoberfest,” an evening of art-inspired beer and cheese pairings, plus exhibition tours and still-life drawing stations, all in celebration of our current exhibition Drawn to Life: Master Drawings from the Age of Rembrandt in the Peck Collection at the Ackland Art Museum

Tasting boards designed by The Cheese Shop (Carrboro, NC) will feature a selection of cheeses with connections to the drawings on view. Both boards and a la carte cheeses to take home will be available for purchase. 

Local craft beers that pair well with the cheeses (and art!) will be available from Craftboro Brewing (Carrboro, NC) at a cash bar, with additional non-alcoholic offerings for sale.

Exhibition curator Dana Cowen will lead mini-tours of Drawn to Life throughout the evening, with a special look at the works that have been paired with the cheeses and beers.

At a still-life drawing station designed by University Florist (Chapel Hill, NC), try your hand at sketching from a gorgeous seasonal arrangement.

The admission is free. Food and drinks will be sold separately during the event by our vendor partners.
