    ART STARS

    Josiah McElheny’s dazzling glass sculptures of starbursts and galaxies light up the galleries, while downstairs our café transforms into a stylish waterfront lounge. Enjoy exhibition-themed cocktails, then take a seat on the grandstand for some summer night star-gazing. This will be a cosmic event!

    Food & Drink
    • Specialty Cocktails: Cosmos (a rum and lime cocktail inspired by the exhibition) & Sangria
    • Menu items: Small plates

    Programs
    20-minute spotlight tours of works in Josiah McElheny: Some Pictures of the Infinite
    • 6 pm: Island Universe
    • 7 pm: Island Universe

    Masters of the Universe
    •8 pm: Tour Josiah McElheny: Some Pictures of the Infinite, then join in a gallery conversation around McElheny’s Island Universe and how artists and scientists visualize the beginning of our universe. Grab a drink at ICA First Fridays and head outside to the Putnam Investments Plaza to take in a “film strip” (just like the ones from high school!) about the history of these heavenly depictions. End the evening with stargazing on the waterfront.
