ART BEYOND THE GLASS VII
RETURNS TO LOS GLOBOS
Now celebrating its seventh year, Art Beyond the Glass VII is taking place this Sunday, June 24 at Los Globos in Silver Lake. Art Beyond the Glass VII, L.A.'s premier cocktail culture festival, will feature 100 top bartenders making cocktails and showcasing their artistry, from painting and sculpture to photography, live music and more, all while raising funds for the Women’s Center for Creative Work and celebrating L.A.’s top women in the Industry.
Hosted by Bar Rescue’s Mia Mastroianni, ABTG VII is taking place at Los Globos, the landmark nightclub located on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Silver Lake. Opened as L.A.'s first American Legion hall in the 1930s, Los Globos is a massive two-story venue with multiple rooms and state-of-the-art sound and lighting.
Art Beyond the Glass VII is honored to be raising funds for the Women's Center for Creative Work, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Frogtown. Combining a co-workspace on the L.A. River, project incubation facilities, residency programs, a rapidly growing network of over 20,000 followers, and a full calendar of artistic and professional development programming, WCCW advocates for feminist-led creative businesses and projects in Los Angeles.
Art Beyond the Glass (ABTG) is a special event that showcases the artistic pursuits of bartenders outside of their bars. At ABTG, everything from the cocktails to the art and music is created and performed by bartenders. Proceeds from every ABTG event are donated to a cultural nonprofit organization. Since its founding in November 2011, ABTG has donated over $127,000 to nonprofits across the country.
