5 cocktail recipes to discover Georgia O’Keeffe’s art

Creativity has a big part in making cocktails. This perspective led the North Carolina Museum of Art to organize a special exposition under the theme: The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art.

In addition to presenting the works of the American artist, the exhibition pursues another objective that of inviting restaurants to prepare cocktails based on Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings. The presentation takes place from October 13, 2018 to January 20, 2019.
