Art & Absinthe - CANCELED

During Maker & Muse: Women and Early Twentieth Century Art Jewelry

Fridays, March 13, April 10, and May 8
5:00–7:00 p.m.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

Join The Frick Pittsburgh, Wigle Whiskey, and our favorite female DJs for an evening of jewels, jams, and spirits at The Frick Art Museum. Inspired by our exhibition of early-twentieth-century art jewelry and the progressive women who engendered these gems, we’re serving the turn-of-the-century bohemian’s favorite beverage. Witness the elegant drip of an absinthe fountain, learn about the controversial drink linked with artists and writers for decades, view dazzling jewels in our exhibition galleries, and mingle with The Green Fairy. (Literally, she’ll be here.) Learn more about the evenings' music below.

Jewelry adornment is encouraged!

About the Music

DJ Jess is trained in violin and dance, which helped foster her beatmatching and creative transitional skills behind the decks. In 2019, she opened up for Sheila E at the Women Who Rock benefit concert at Stage AE. DJ Jess has also performed in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Columbus, and Charleston, WV. The music for this evening will include a fusion of modern lounge remixes from classic female jazz and blues artists blended with indie selections and lo-fi electronic and swing remix tracks, bridging the gap between old and new, and creating the perfect soundtrack for sipping and mingling.

DJ Stephanie has been DJing the Pittsburgh area since 2003. She has always had a love for music and business and, after finishing college in 2004, started Premium Soundz DJ Service, performing at various types of events ever since. Her eclectic style varies from indie alternative to 80s and pop. Tonight is all about the bling! This evening’s tracks will include popular hits featuring jewelry, gemstones, and precious metals.

Pittsburgh-based DJ Femi is is known for sets featuring Futuristic Afrobeat, Hip Hop, and Trap-Soul, creating a vibe that will make you never want the night to end! She has opened for Shoreline Mafia, UNIIQU3, Rico Nasty, Dai Burger, and many others. She is a beacon of light in the city’s night life and a prime example of women’s DJ talent.
