June 30, 2017 – Manchester – The Currier Museum of Art is pleased to announce it will be hosting an outdoor summer block party with free general admission and open museum for all to enjoy. This first-of-its-kind summer event will reinforce the Currier’s commitment to the New Hampshire community, through family-friendly activities as well as a range of programs for visitors of all ages.


“We want people to come and enjoy a summer evening at the museum – both inside and out. We will have a range of art-making and educational activities, plus live music, light displays, and food and drink,” stated Alan Chong, Director of the Currier Museum. “Whether you’ve been to the Currier Museum before or are considering coming for the first time, we invite all Granite Staters to take advantage of this magnificent resource. This is an opportunity to participate in a fun, free evening, enjoy beautiful works of art, and even create pieces to bring home.”


The event, “Twilight at the Currier,” will be Manchester’s largest outdoor block party of the season and offer a wide-range of activities, including live music, food trucks, performances by local dance companies, hooping and juggling acts, art making, face painting and much more. The museum itself will also be open and access to all exhibits will be free. Great food and drink (including wine and beer) will be available for purchase.


The event will take place on Saturday July 22 from 5 pm to 9 pm. There will be a lighted parade at twilight, where students from the Currier’s Art Center will lead in their hand made mythical creature costumes and invite everyone to join in the procession.


“We want the museum to play a bigger role in our neighborhood, community, and state,” said Chong.
