The outing wasn’t their first: They caught Ethan Coen’s A Play Is a Poem in L.A. in September and reportedly saw comedian Mike Birbiglia’s one-man show in October. Shawkat, 30, stars on TBS’s Search Party and has shown her own artwork in galleries. Pitt, 55—who’s heading into awards season after acclaimed turns in Ad Astra and Once upon a Time … in Hollywood—“loves the art world,” says another source. “He has a large group of artist friends that he hangs out with. Several are women, but he is very much about keeping friends as friends.” BACKGRID; AMY SUSSMAN/INVISION/AP/SHUTTERSTOCK; SAMIR…
