Enjoy “Word Play” at November’s Third Thursday, in celebration of Henry James and American Painting exhibition

November 16, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 - $15

This evening, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is partnering with the Boston Literary District to draw inspiration from the new Henry James and American Painting exhibition. Visitors can play with words in a fun variety of literary games, artistic exploration, and poetic activities using James’s writing as a starting point.

Will Dailey, three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter, will perform in the Courtyard. Known for his soulful sound and thoughtful lyrics, his music has been described as having a rich, vintage vibe.

The monthly Third Thursday gatherings were recently named Best “Arty Party” by Improper Bostonian and are designed to offer an enchanting atmosphere in the Museum at night. There is a different theme each month with music, creative collaborations, playful gallery activities, and hands-on art making as part of this lively, social evening. Café G is open for snacks, dinner and drinks, and a cash bar is open near the Courtyard.
