An Evening of Tango, Music, and Art
December 30, 2013 at 7:00pm
PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.
Get an early start on your New Year's festivities! Grab your dancing shoes and join us for a festive evening of tango, live music, beautiful art, and Argentinian inspired tapas and wine. Start the evening with an after-hours viewing of artist Janet Ruttenberg's monumental paintings of Central Park, including her dreamlike depiction of the tango dancers who congregate every summer Saturday night in Central Park. Enjoy a live performance by a group of master tango artists headlined by tango singer Pablo Pereyra, with dancers Jorge Torres and Maria Blanco, violinist Sergio Reyes, bassist Alexis Cuadrado, bandoneon player Ayelen Pais Negrin, and pianist Juan Manuel Santisteban. A group tango lesson will follow the performance -- no experience required! Delicious empanadas, eggplant escabeche, Spanish cheeses, and Argentinian wine will be available from the Museum Café.
Co-sponsored by the Tango Factory, Malbec & Tango House, and the Astoria Tango School and presented in conjunction with Picturing Central Park: Paintings by Janet Ruttenberg.
$20 for Museum members, students, and seniors; $30 general public.
