What is Art on the Rocks? 
The Art League has thrown down the gauntlet, challenging local mixologists from ChadwicksColumbia FirehouseGBD Fried Chicken & Donuts,Mason SocialRedRocks Neapolitan Bistro, and Virtue Feed & Grain to each select a piece of artwork as inspiration to whip up a new, artistic cocktail and pair it with a delicious appetizer. Patrons come and enjoy the artwork/cocktail/appetizer trifectas and help select a new “Art on the Rocks” champion.

Ticket-holders sample all of the delicious pairings and vote for their favorite at the event. A panel of experts, including representatives from Catoctin Creek Distillery and Green Hat Distillery, will crown the winner of the most creative cocktail, appetizer and artwork pairing.
