Join us at the Jewish Museum every Thursday evening in December to toast Edith Halpert and the Rise of American Art with signature cocktails crafted and served by Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum.

Enjoy the Russ & Daughters Beet & Lemon Shrub Cocktail—the perfect selection because of the legendary gallerist Edith Halpert’s love of gin and borscht—followed by a visit to the exhibition featuring works on view by the artists Halpert championed, including Stuart Davis, Jacob Lawrence, and Georgia O’Keeffe.

Cocktails: $10. Also available: prosecco, wines, and select beers for $8. Jewish Museum Members receive $1 off drink prices.
Food is available for purchase at Russ & Daughters’ Appetizing Counter, located on the Museum’s lower level.
Admission to the Museum is $18 adults; $12 for seniors 65 and over; $8 students.
