Seven local mixologists will each select a piece of artwork from The Art League's Pop Art exhibit as inspiration, then compete to create the most artistic cocktail and appetizer pairing to earn the title of Art on the Rocks champion.

Ticket holders sample all seven pairings and vote for their favorite at the event. A panel of experts — including a representative from Catoctin Creek Distillery; Jenn Larsen, the editor-in-chief of WeLoveDC.com; and Morgan Hungerford-West, artist, creative consultant, and lifestyle blogger at PandaHeadBlog.com — will crown the winner of the most creative cocktail, appetizer, and artwork pairing.

Appetizers from the restaurants, drawings for prizes, and live jazz music by the Gassman­n Duo will complete the evening.

Tickets are $35. Proceeds benefit The Art League and outreach programs including the Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund, a Space of Her Own (SOHO) and IMPART.

Participating restaurants: Bastille, Chadwick's, Columbia Firehouse, the Light Horse Restaurant, RedRocks Neapolitan Bistro, Union Street Public House, and Virtue Feed & Grain.
