To kick off its Prohibition-themed art and ephemera exhibition, Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction is partnering with the National Constitution Center to host a flapper-icious First Friday fete this evening from 6-8pm. Throughout the month, the edgy-yet-retro clothing and gift apothecary/boutique will display graphic illustrations that depict famous Philly Prohibition characters by local artist Hank Krall, as well as artifacts from the era. It’s Called “Art in the Age of Prohibition.” Get it?
Through the exhibition’s run, the store will also program lectures and workshops on homebrewing, Prohibition cocktails and spirits production. As for tonight, we couldn’t get any confirmation on the drink list, but every time we’ve been to an Art in the Age reception, there’s been a bartender mixing esoteric concoctions with the company’s three historically-inspired liquor brands: Root, Snap and Rhuby. We’re guessing that, tonight, they’ll probably be adding Sage to the mix(ers) as well.
