Feast: A Dinner Series
Blaffer Art Museum, Texas Monthly, Uchi, and Whole Foods have joined forces to create an unforgettable private dinner series inspired by the upcoming exhibition at Blaffer Art Museum Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art opening September 6, 2013.
Feast: A Dinner Series pairs famed culinary director Philip Speer of Uchi (recently named one of Bon Apetit Magazine’s “20 Most Important Restaurants in America”) with artists in the exhibition to create unique events that defy the rules of traditional culinary and artistic experience. The dinners, hosted in the private homes of Houston collectors, are designed as intimate gatherings, accommodating only 30 guests for a multi-course meal with wine pairings provided by renowned sommelier, David Keck. We invite you to join us for one or all of the dinners and prepare yourself to experience a partnership between food and art like never before. All dinners begin at 7pm.
