Remember the neighborhoods of yesteryear? Join Cape Fear Museum Associates for a Patio Party inspired by the upcoming Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition Patios, Pools and the Invention of the American Backyard.

Filled with vintage photographs, historic drawings, and period advertisements, the exhibition reveals how the suburban backyard became such an integral part of American pop culture. Enjoy retro cocktails, thrill of the grill cuisine, mid-century era tunes, and see the exhibit. Patios, Pools, & the Invention of the American Backyard is presented by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the Smithsonian Garden’s Archive of American Gardens.

Help us tell this uniquely American story with your sponsorship.
