Persian Nights

Discover the beauty and wonder of Persian Nights at Culture & Cocktails at The San Diego Museum of Art

The Museum's popular sundown series travels to ancient Persia (modern-day Iran) with an evening inspired by the newly installed Arts of Iran and Arts of South and Southeast Asia galleries. Find inspiration in the geometric Iranian motifs featured in the galleries to create your own mosaic choker necklace or cuff bracelet, add your personal flair to a collaborative sticky note mural, and enjoy a Darius the Great signature cocktail crafted by award-winning distillery Papa's Pilar Rum. Portland-based artist Christina Lonsdale is bringing her Radiant Human photography laboratory to "make the metaphysical" tangible through extrasensory portraits of your aura!
