Enjoy interesting, fun studio art activities paired with a glass of wine, light hors d’oeuvres and great conversation during Wine & Art nights at the Figge. Featuring a different art medium each month, you’ll create finished art works to display in your home in these cool, casual studio sessions.

El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
Instructor: Gloria Burlingame
6-8 p.m. Thursday, November 3

Explore the background and lore of the Mexican Day of the Dead, a special day for the celebration of loved ones who have passed from this life, and create an art project inspired by this holiday of compassion and remembrance.


Enjoy Thursdays at the Figge each week at the museum! Enjoy a drink at the bar while watching the eagles soar over the majestic Mississippi River, or have a meal at the cafe (open 4:30-7 pm). Stroll through galleries filled with art and experience one of our world-class traveling exhibitions. Join us for a lecture, a class, a performance or a special activity. Meet friends or bring your family—every Thursday at the Figge will offer a different experience, and admission is free.
