Featuring nearly sixty works predominantly from the DMA’s extensive design holdings, Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail explores the culture of cocktails and the wares in which they were prepared and served. The exhibition follows the development of the modern cocktail from the late 19th century to the present day, tracing the stylistic reflections of the rituals of the cocktail’s concoction, presentation, and consumption through metalware, glassware, and ceramics. Featuring a range of objects, many of which are on view for the first time, Shaken, Stirred, Styled includes 19th-century punch bowls, early 20th-century liquor decanters and glasses, Prohibition-era cocktail shakers, and Art Deco and modern barware.
Admission is FREE.
Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail is presented by ROXOR Artisan Gin.
