Beauty and the East

PM @ The TM: Beauty and the East
Thursday, September 27, 6-9 PM
Tickets: $15 (includes one complimentary beer or wine)

Celebrating the opening of our new exhibition, The Sultan’s Garden: The Blossoming of Ottoman Art, we are throwing a fête in our own unique gardens.

Sip a drink and enjoy food by Mie n Yu Restaurant, while listening to the Django jazz of Hot Club of DC and lounging in a fabulous fabric tent custom-designed by Morgan West of PandaHead. Move inside the museum to enjoy the floral textiles of the Ottoman Empire in a gallery tour of The Sultan’s Garden, and make your own fabric corsage.

Bohemian gorgeous dress is encouraged, and dress your best for a chance to have your photo taken for "Scene Stealers” in The Washington Post's Fashion Washington!

This event is supported by Culturadar. Beauty and the East is an event of Turkish Cultural Heritage Month, organized by the American-Turkish Association of Washington, D.C.

Advance tickets are available here.

The Fine Print: No outside food or alcoholic beverages permitted. Must be 21+ to purchase alcoholic beverages. Food vendors may not be able to accept credit cards, so cash is encouraged.
