Tuesday, September 17, 2013
5:30 – 10 p.m
For one night every year, fine wine and fine food come together as one in “The Art of Wine & Food” at the New Britain Museum of American Art. MaryEllen Fillo, columnist for the Hartford Courant has called this event a party that is sure to impress!
Honorary Chair Gesine Bullock-Prado, the author of the memoir My Life from Scratch and the cookbooks Sugar Baby, Pie It Forward and Bake It Like You Mean It will be on hand throughout the evening to mingle with guests and sign cookbooks. She will be joined by many of the region’s most well-regarded Chefs whose delectable dishes will be paired with impressive wines from around the world for this one-of-a-kind prestigious event. The evening will also feature live and silent auctions full of exciting and unique offerings. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular evening of superb food and wine in a dynamic setting.
All funds raised will benefit the Museum’s Family and Educational Programming, called “vibrant” and “accessible” by the Museum’s accrediting body, the American Alliance of Museums. With education at the heart of the NBMAA’s mission, the Museum seeks to be one of the most effective centers for learning in the region by creating an optimal learning environment for the Museum’s diverse audiences. In fiscal year 2012, we welcomed over 70,000 visitors and reached over 15,000 students and families. Your involvement in The Art of Wine & Food will help to provide free or discounted tours for students across the state, preserve our low fees for art studio classes, underwrite weekly after-school programs open to at-risk youth, and sustain the popular hands-on ArtLab for children and families.
Plan to be there…it promises to be a lively evening.
