A-Listers host art mixer at Athenaeum on Aug. 29

Choose a cocktail and a song when the Athenaeum A-List presents “Member’s Choice: Pick Your Poison,” 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29 at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St.

Forty-six San Diego artists have works in the 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition at the Athenaeum, where their 51 diverse pieces coalesce from a muddled collection to a smooth cocktail of art. At this event, guests and members may vote for their favorite piece.

The competition will continue in the music room as dueling pianists battle on a pair of grand pianos. Rhythmic dissonance will melt into melodic harmony as they enliven their music with a battle of the keys.

The choices carry on at a pair of gourmet food trucks and a create-your-own vodka cocktail bar.

The A-List is a membership group for young professionals of generations X and Y who are interested in expanding their horizons in music and art. Founded in 2005, The A-List hosts six events a year at either the library in La Jolla or the Athenaeum’s School of the Arts studio off-site in University Heights.

Each 21+ event features an art exhibition, music by a local band/artist, food and drinks, and a communal art project. Admission to the mixer is free for A-List members. Tickets are $12 for nonmembers at or (858) 454-5872.
