MINNEAPOLIS (May 3, 2023)— This spring, the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) is hosting Mia After Dark, a series of after-hours food and drink events showcasing the Mia experience in new ways. Two different levels—Art & Wine After Dark, and Art & Dining After Dark—both offer unique food and drink pairings in an exclusive setting.

Art & Wine After Dark pairs Mia’s exhibitions with thoughtfully selected wine and light bites. The evening includes a private, curator-led walkthrough of a Mia exhibition and a wine tasting with acclaimed sommelier Bill Summerville. Guests will enjoy curated wine selections, small bites from Paris Dining Club, and a lively discussion inspired by the exhibition theme. Art & Wine After Dark is held on Tuesday evenings, beginning with “Caravaggio’s Judith and Holofernes.” Tickets are $125 per person, all-inclusive.

Art & Dining After Dark is a unique private dining experience set within the museum’s galleries, with themes inspired by Mia’s special exhibitions. The first is inspired by “Caravaggio’s Judith and Holofernes.” Each evening features a multi-course, salon-style dinner from James Beard Award-nominated Jamie Malone and Paris Dining Club; wine pairings by acclaimed sommelier Bill Summerville; and a private, curator-led tour of the exhibition. Throughout the evening, insights from Mia’s director and curators as well as the culinary team highlight creative expression, from field and kitchen to studio and museum. Tickets are $375 per person, all-inclusive.

Ticket purchases support the museum’s mission.
