The Corcoran’s annual fundraiser, presented by the 1869 Society, was a fun-filled evening of art, cocktails, entertainment, and dancing. Eight mixologists from some of the area’s prominent restaurants and bars—including the Gibson, Daikaya, Bandolero, the Passenger, Jack Rose, Zentan, Ambar, and P.O.V. at the W Hotel—served up martinis inspired by pieces of art in the museum. Adam Sackett and Frank Jones from the Gibson took home the gold and won the Critics’ Choice award for their FEW rye whiskey martini inspired by Henri Regnault’s “Head of a Moor.” Funds from the event go toward NOW at the Corcoran, the museum’s series of contemporary art exhibitions and performances.
