When the Carnegie mansion was built, it may have been lavish, but it was designed to be home. That spirit lives on in Cocktails@Cooper-Hewitt, our popular summer series. Every Friday evening, Members and museum visitors come “home” to Cooper-Hewitt to unwind for the weekend.
The Ed Fuqua Group provides smooth sounds of jazz wafting through the summer air of the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden while visitors enjoy a sunset over the façade of the Fifth Avenue mansion. Others seek refuge from the heat and cool down in the galleries with National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? and Ted Muehling Selects: Lobmeyr Glass from the Permanent Collection.
Join us for the final Friday on August 27 at 6:00pm. Admission is only $5; Shop visitors enjoy an additional 10% off. Visitors will also have the opportunity to become a Member at a special rate and enjoy Cooper-Hewitt all year long.
