About the Event

Enjoy an evening of art, live music, cocktails, and light fare at our monthly First Friday mixer.

Tonight’s event, presented in partnership with AFROTAINO Productions, features cellist, composer, and visual artist Daniel de Jesús. Their music, which has been described as baroque pop and neo-goth, incorporates tribal beats, ambient soundscapes, and soaring vocals that enhance the artist’s powerful string arrangements. De Jesús’s latest release, Sonetos de Amor Oscuro, is inspired by the writing of Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca and recounts a forbidden love amid civil war.

Live music sets:
6:30 and 7:45 pm

First Friday at the Barnes includes access to the collection galleries.

Cocktails and light fare are available for purchase. Seating is limited.
