ARTINI Feature Nights
6:30–8:30 p.m. starting February 11.
In anticipation of ARTINI, join the 1869 Society Steering Committee and ARTINI Host Committee for our 10 Feature Nights. Each of the participating venues will host a happy hour and make a donation to support NOW at the Corcoran, the series of contemporary exhibitions and performances. Mingle with fellow 1869 Society members and be one of the first to sample the featured artini for a great cause.

For the fourth year, ARTINI will celebrate a "Critics' Choice" selection, in addition to the winner of the popular vote. In order to select the Critics' Choice winner, taste, presentation, and the artini's connection to the artwork will be evaluated by a panel of esteemed judges:
- Svetlana Legetic of Brightest Young Things
- Sophie Gilbert, Arts Editor, Washingtonian Magazine
- Derek Brown of The Passenger, Eat the Rich, and Mockingbird Hill
- Kaitlin Booher, Assistant Curator of Photography + Media Arts, Corcoran Gallery of Art
- Ronald Flores of Art + Soul
- Scott Clime of Acadiana, District Commons, DC Coast
