Mütter Museum 150th Anniversary Party! Friday, January 9th
The Mütter Museum's 150th Anniversary Party will take place this Friday, January 9th at the museum, located in Philadelphia, Pennslvania. Tickets start at a whopping $85, but it looks to be an pretty great event, and includes after-hours museum admission, open bar and tickets to the Mütter Museum dance party. That's right. Dance party.
If you opt for one of the higher-priced options (Patron or Supporter tickets), you'll also get a behind-the-scenes tour, a "whimsical Victorian dinner," and the opportunity to bear witness to the unveiling of the oil-on-canvas portrait by Alexandra Tyng, commissioned by the College for installation in the Worden Gallery, of the visionary and beloved (and, sadly, deceased) former Mütter Museum director Gretchen Worden. (On the Gretchen note: I was just informed that Errol Morris did a film about Gretchen; you can see an excerpt of it here.)
Hope to see you there!
