Make Your Mark: Opening Reception

February 14, 5pm – 7pm

On walls, on objects, on the human body, on paper… what does it mean to stamp your label, leave a paint stroke, sign your name, or sew a stitch? Make Your Mark, the Fairfield Museum’s latest exhibition, will open on February 14th with a free, fun reception that will be the perfect stop for a night out or a cocktail before your Valentine’s Day dinner.

 It will feature hip music, henna tattoos, specialty cocktails and local fare. Guests can swing to musical compositions by Christopher Cavaliere while sipping an eclectic cocktail from Bigelow Tea and getting a cool henna tattoo from Fairfield artist Priyanka Jain.
