'Teotihuacan: City of Water, City of Fire' explores one of the earliest, largest, and most important cities in the ancient Americas, bringing together art and artifacts from recent excavations with objects found as long as a century ago. Traces of pulque, a drink made from the sap of the agave plant and the precursor to tequila and mezcal, are found on pottery shards from central Mexico which date back to 150 BC.
Join ArtPoint for a journey back in time to experience all that Teotihuacan, the “Birthplace of the Gods,” had to offer and taste the evolution of an ancient type of liquor that has existed for over 2,000 years. Guests will enjoy Mexican-inspired bites, tequila and mezcal tastings, beats from DJ Matt Haze, and a special performance by Tezkatlipoka Aztec Dance & Drum.
ArtPoint is a group of young professionals that supports the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco by hosting a year-round program of events. Members enjoy exhibition-related lectures, gallery parties, and museum galas
