Art Beyond the Glass celebrated its five-year anniversary in a big way: more than 100 bartenders, 30+ sponsors, and hundreds of guests gathered at Resident this past June for an afternoon of cocktails, culture and community. Located in the Arts District, Resident hosted ABTG V in its beautiful beer garden, indoor live music stage, and the adjacent alley for an unforgettable indoor-outdoor experience.
Continuing its streak of topping the previous year's fundraising total, ABTG V donated over $25,000 to Global Inheritance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that uses art to develop experiences that educate individuals about global issues and inspire them to take positive actions that create solutions.
Bartenders and their sponsors outdid themselves this year, with themes ranging from surgeons and airline pilots to rock icons and The Bitter Truth team, who hired a professional makeup artist to "age" them into bitter old bartenders!
After the jump, read on for highlights from the biggest Art Beyond the Glass ever. For more photos of ABTG V, visit the Art Beyond the Glass Facebook page. Much love and see you next June!
