Eat Art is a new socially-engaged happening that celebrates art, food, and community. Join us on a cultural journey that takes you on a captivating tour of contemporary art at the acclaimed Brooklyn Museum followed by an intimate dinner party nearby at a cozy, private residence. Hang out with Eat Art and get inspired by Brooklyn, its artists and its culinary splendor!
Our guided tour will explore works by Brooklyn artists who use classical ideas to explore modern issues in society. Artists include Fred Wilson, Mickalene Thomas, Valerie Hagerty, and under-the-radar emerging artists in new special exhibition Raw/Cooked. Learn about and contribute your observations to a lively discussion exploring the artists’ process, intention and connection to art history.
Our hour-long tour will be followed by a refreshing walk down historic Eastern Parkway, arriving at a warm, private home in historical Prospect Heights. Cocktails and a five-course dinner inspired by and complimenting our journey through the museum will be waiting. Connecting to the theme of our tour, our seasonal, farm fresh menu showcases contemporary approaches to traditional dishes. The menu includes delicious plates such as beer-braised local chicken and lamb andouille sausage atop root mash, caramelized onions and horseradish cream and molasses cake with roasted apples and crème fraiche, all paired with a Maine Bee-Sting cocktail or Bellwether hard cider.
We can’t wait to spend time with you at the Eat Art event on Saturday, October 15! Our discussion will be artful, our tastebuds will be excited and our bellies will be full.
