What kind of martini would Darwin prefer?
I suppose we'll never know, but while you're pondering that question, you can peruse the artwork of Selections, a collection of illustrations, paintings and drawings that reveal the relationship between science and art, and meet the artists who made the works this Friday, Oct. 14, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
The meet-and-greet is included in the admission price for Martinis & IMAX, where you can sip on your favorite martini while checking out the Darwin exhibit. There will be music by Electromatics (a combination of Chicago/West Coast blues, blue-eyed soul, Sinatra and standard jazz), and you can end the evening with the 9 p.m. showing of Galapagos, the legendary islands where Darwin formed the basis of his evolution theory. $7-$12. 6:30-11 p.m.
Also Friday, if you want to just check out the Darwin exhibit without the music, movie and libations, Fernbank hosts "Darwin After Dark," special evening viewing hours of the museum's newest exhibition. $10. 6:30-10 p.m. (last entry at 9:15).
