Nightcap with Tania Katan
Nightcaps are a celebration of someone who has been an influential person within the Valley’s art community. Tilt Gallery has hosted two Nightcap events: the first in honor of Dr. Julia Friedman, a writer, curator, art critic, and former ASU professor, and the second in honor of Adriene Jenik, director of the school of art at ASU.
Nightcaps are socializing events that provide a more intimate setting for people to come and have a conversation with arts leaders with the goal of fostering professional connections and building community.
Our third event will be on May 19, from 7 to 9pm. Tilt Gallery’s Guest of Honor will be Tania Katan.
