Twilight in the Gardens
Join PMG for our new Twilight in the Gardens multisensory series! On these special evenings, hang out with friends, enjoy unique and enthralling performances, explore your own creativity with artistic activities, and drink a beverage of your choice during evenings in our beautiful mosaicked labyrinth.
Taking place on the fourth Friday of the month from April-October, each Twilight in the Gardens features a unique array of arts experiences paired with a live musical performance. You might participate in an art-making activity to the sounds of a toy pianist, or witness a fire dancer spinning flames after hearing a steel drum band! These one-of-a-kind events also give visitors the chance to learn more about PMG through fun, casual mini-tours of the space and view the temporary exhibitions hanging in our galleries. All Twilight in the Gardens evenings are BYOB, but wine will be available with drink tickets in case you forget your bottle!
Bring a drink, a friend, and some curiosity and let PMG help you unwind after work with Twilight in the Gardens! Tickets are $10/adults, $8/students, seniors and members. Members also get a free drink ticket!
*All guests must be 21 years old to drink.
