Local to-do: After Hours at the Gardner

afterHoursBanner_08 This Thursday night, August 20, is the last of the summer’s After Hours nights at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum down in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston. As if the museum’s not enchanting enough during daytime, After Hours offers live music, artistic discussion, and sketching in the museum’s gardens, plus cocktails and munchies. Bring a friend, bring a sketchbook, meet some artsy friends.  And maybe while you’re there, put your smarts to solving the Gardner’s (in)famous 1990 art theft, completely unsolved with an estimated $300 million of art on the fritz. Because of Ms. Gardner’s instructions that the collection be left unchanged after her death, empty frames hang where the missing Degas, Rembrant, and others once were displayed. (There’s $5 million in it for you if you crack the case.)

After Hours isn’t free–$12 adults, $10 seniors, $5 students–but it’s an excellent Boston arts scene night out.
