Art After Dark
Primavera & First Light Funeral
5 – 9 pm Newport Art Museum (76 Bellevue Avenue)
Welcome longer days, more sunlight, and the start of spring with friends and family at the Museum. Look closer at the Museum's collection for examples of Luminist painting with Peter Arguimbau, sample spring's bounty with Harvest Kitchen's veggie delights, view the stars above through high-powered telescopes and learn the related mythical stories of the spring sky constellations. Live music, early evening guided tours for children and late night "Insomniac Tours" for adults, an all-ages scavenger hunt of the Museum's permanent collection, hands-on crafts, libations and light refreshments.
