2nd Annual Art Beyond the Glass Benefiting All Access Arts!

September 12, 2017

The second annual Art Beyond the Glass: Oklahoma City is taking place on Sunday, September 24 at 51st street Speakeasy! ABTG features Oklahoma City’s top bartenders mixing cocktails and showcasing their artistry. The event features paintings, photography, live music, DJs, dancers, handmade glass and more.

ABTG OKC is raising money for Arts Council Oklahoma City’s All Access Arts Initiative, “Art Shaping Character.” Founded and run by Paul Medina, Art Shaping Character is an arts based mentoring program for at-risk Oklahoma City youth. Through weekly art sessions students develop a trusting relationship with their teacher and become comfortable expressing themselves in new ways. The lessons taught in class foster creativity and help develop critical thinking skills. The goal is for students to take what they learned in the classroom into their daily lives to provide guidance for any challenges they may be facing.

The all-inclusive ABTG OKC ticket includes cocktails, art exhibit, entertainment, and bar bites. Guests will be able to purchase bartender art, buy raffle tickets and bid on silent auction items such as artwork, photography, rare spirits and more. Art Beyond the Glass is a 21 and over event. Please enjoy responsibly. ABTG strongly recommends using a ride share service such as Uber or Lyft.
