Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Montgomery, AL, October 5, 2016- Come join us at the fifth annual Art in Concert for great local food and live music from Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes. This American indie-rock band based in Nashville is best known for top singles such as “Shoe Fits” and “Bleeding Tongue,” and their single “Passenger” was featured on Amazon’s Best Songs of 2012 at the number 33 spot. This rain-or-shine event will take place on Friday, October 14, on the front lawn of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.

We are excited to host King’s Table Catering cooking on site with tasty options like pulled pork sandwiches, BBQ nachos, and more. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and remember, no coolers or outside food and drink are permitted. Don’t forget your blankets and lawn chairs.

The gates open at 6 P.M. and the show starts at 8. General admission tickets are $15. For the first time, we are offering a VIP package for only $50 that includes food and drink sponsored by Pine Bar and Vintage Year from 5:30 to 7 P.M. plus a meet and-greet with the band before the show.

Get your tickets now at www.mmfa.org or call 334.240.4333. General admission tickets can also be purchased at the gate on the night of the concert using cash or card.

The MMFA’s JEB is grateful to Art in Concert sponsors Auburn University at Montgomery and the WK Upchurch Construction Company, and to supporters Pine Bar, Vintage Year, Longleaf Strategies, and The Shoppes at Eastchase.

The JEB is composed of 25 dynamic River Region young professionals, whose goal is to build awareness of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts through the planning and promotion of events appealing to young professionals. Proceeds from events like Art in Concert benefit the Museum’s acquisition, exhibition, and education programs.

The MMFA, a department of the City of Montgomery, is supported by funds from the City of Montgomery and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts Association. Programs are made possible, in part, by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts. Exhibition programs are supported by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.
