2014 Season of Art on the Rocks a Success

/ In the Community - Press Release - Programs

That’s a wrap for the 10th Anniversary season of Art On The Rocks presented by Dale’s Seasoning! More than 6,500 people visited the Museum and enjoyed performances by Birmingham artists, musicians, dancers, comedians, actors and designers who drew inspiration from the Museum’s world-renowned permanent collection and our summer exhibition Lethal Beauty: Samurai Weapons and Armor.

Guests enjoyed Japanese-inspired cuisine and drinks from A Social Affair, community art collaborations, an Asian-inspired fashion show, and our newest addition to AOTR – Nijikai! The Nijikai after-party was an enormous success, thanks to participating venues: Carrigan’s Public House, Paramount, and The Collins Bar. The Upper Plaza was flooded with excitement brought on by the talented headlining bands Seryn, The Kopecky Family Band, and Matrimony. The diverse range of performances and demonstrations from local artists and supporters included DJ COCO, DANCEe, Yellowhammer Creative, Shaia’s and Southern Femme, AEIVA and Magic Chromacity, The Baking Bandits, Steva Casey of Veranda, Saks Fifth Avenue, Seasick Records, DJ Coco, and Pastry Art.

The Birmingham Museum of Art would like to thank all of the volunteers, sponsors, and new guests who became members during Art on The Rocks!

A special thanks to the sponsors who made this 2014 season such a success: Dale’s Seasoning, Bromberg’s, Birmingham Budweiser, Pinnacle Vodka, Back Forty Beer Co., H2 Real Estate, Fox 6, and Birmingham Mountain Radio.
