Rodin Garden Bar: Happy Hour (In Person)
Enjoy a change of scenery at the Rodin Garden Bar Pop-up. Explore the Rodin Museum, enjoy refreshing summer cocktails and tasty small plates, listen to music, and take in the garden oasis. Join fellow Harvard alums, family, and friends for a late summer Happy Hour and revel in the Rodin Museum, featuring sculptures from the famous French sculptor Auguste Rodin.
The Rodin Museum in Philadelphia, part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, is one of the world’s greatest collections of Rodin’s works—and the only dedicated Rodin Museum outside of France. The Museum was the gift of movie-theatre magnate Jules Mastbaum, who began collecting Rodin’s works in 1923 to found a museum and enrich the lives of his fellow citizens. Included in the collection are bronze castings, plaster studies, drawings, printers, letters, and books. One of Rodin’s best-known sculptures, “The Thinker,” sits outside the museum’s entry courtyard greeting visitors.
When: Friday, August 19, 5:30-7:30
Where: 2151 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA 19130
What: Mingle with Harvard alums, family, friends, and leashed pets in the gardens. There will be a Harvard Club Banner and a group of individuals there early to make it easier to convene. The Museum has a guided exhibition tour of Rodin’s Hands from 6-7 which attendees can do if they wish, but is separate from this happy hour event.
Cost: Entry into the garden is free. Small bites and drinks can be paid with cash or card. The museum is Pay What You Wish (donation-based) admission.
Note: This event is family friendly with leashed pets allowed in the gardens only. There are water bowls available for the animals. Other food options outside of the Garden Bar are available at the nearby Whole Foods across the street or other local eateries like Wawa, Starbucks, Sabrina’s Café, Pizzeria Vetri, and Unit Su Vege.
Parking: Limited metered parking available on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, N 21st Street, and N 22nd Street. Parking also available at the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Parking Garage (located across from the main building on Anne d’Harnoncourt Drive).”
