First Friday at AITA
A graphic illustration of Prohibition in Philadelphia, in Conjunction with the National Constitution Center’s Exhibit- American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition
Art in the Age will showcase the people, places, and processes that played a key role in forming Philadelphia’s unique Prohibition experience. Philadelphia’s cultural history creates the perfect dichotomy of Prohibition. From it’s Quaker roots and Dr. Benjamin Rush’s Moral and Physical Thermometer, to housing some of the most notorious bootleggers of the Prohibition era.
The exhibit will feature original illustrations by Philadelphia based artist and writer, Hawk Krall, as well as photos and ephemera from the Prohibition era.
In addition, lectures and workshops on prohibition cocktails, history, home brewing, and spirits production will be held throughout the exhibition months.
Join us for an opening reception: First Friday, February 1st, from 6-8PM.
