SCRANTON -- A new exhibit now open in Scranton could have you saying "cheers!”


Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey has a look at the new exhibit called “To Your Health: The Art, Culture & Science of the Cocktail.”

The exhibit just opened at the Everhart Museum on July 10th.


According to the museum, the exhibit highlights “alcohol production and consumption, as well as contemporary art that reflects how alcohol, drinks, drinking, access, and the cocktail reflect today’s popular culture and societal mindset. The cocktail, and other alcoholic drinks, have a rich history and great effect on today’s culture and media, as well as reflect social tension regarding alcoholism, binge drinking, and the historical ups-and-downs of the american relationship with alcohol, including but not limited to temperance, prohibition, the depression, and bootlegging.”
