Enjoy a VIP experience with early party access at 6pm, an open bar all night, and a NEW VIP Lounge experience on the 2nd floor with exclusive entertainment, specialty cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres!

Big Art Party > 7:30-11pm

Celebrate Doris Lee, the Big Band Era, and swing music at our 40s-inspired party! Join us for an evening of great food & drink, spectacular live music by Neon Swing Xperience, and special surprises.

Jump, jive and rock at Big Art Party with Neon Swing X-perience, a band whose style is described as “swing with sting” and is a raucous modernization of multiple influences all rooted in the big bands of the 1930s and 1940s!

Proceeds from the Big Art Party benefit the mission of The Westmoreland Museum of American Art to offer a place to share compelling and meaningful cultural experiences that open the door to new ideas, perspectives and possibilities
