If James Bond was in town, he would be at the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art tonight. Go to Martinis & Music this evening from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and enjoy the latest art exhibits “Metro Montage XIV” along with “Duncan and Walkowitz: Modernists of Movement and Line.” Keltic Kudzu, a Celtic Southern fusion band, will entertain.

“Martinis and Music is a social experience for the city of Marietta and surrounding areas. This very popular event is where you can relax after work, view beautiful pieces of art, have a cocktail, glass of wine or soda, mingle with the community of Marietta and listen to live music,” said Sally Macaulay, executive director of Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art.

The event is free to members and $10 for guests. Members enter these events for free all year as well as attend exhibitions. Membership to the museum is only $40 for an individual membership and $55 for a family for the year.

Martinis & Music is a fun way to expose the community to art.

“The majority of the population does not attend art museums on a regular basis - and we felt that if the Marietta community came to the museum for an event, they would see how wonderful it was and join. It worked,” Macaulay said.

The museum conducted its first Martinis & Music on Aug. 10, 2007, with 350 in attendance. “We have never had less than that. Our most attended Martinis and Music brought in around 650 people,” she said.

“These events are a lot of fun, and you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a great time. The restaurants on the Square have also benefitted from great from these events. They are packed after we host our quarterly Martinis and Music nights. I believe that the Marietta community loves to participate in events that are inexpensive and fun. It is a very relaxing, stress free atmosphere,” she said.

MCMA is at 30 Atlanta St., Marietta. Learn more at mariettacobbartmuseum.org or call (770) 528-1444.
