Wednesday, June 19, 5–9 p.m.
City Ice Arts Building, 900 E. 21st St., Kansas City, MO
Join us for a collaborative evening of food and art!
PLUG Projects, a curatorial collaboration of five artists, is curating “Local Earth,” an exhibition in the City Ice Gallery in conjunction with their early summer exhibition, “Rare Earth,” which showcases works of art that examine the environment in innovative ways.
BREAD! KC, a local micro-funding organization, hosts dining events several times a year at which three presenters are given the opportunity to share their proposed projects with the community. At this event, three farmers and gardeners whose sites are featured on the Urban Grown Tour will be presenting proposals related to the “Rare Earth” theme, and at the end of the dinner attendees will vote for the project they would most like to fund. The presenter with the most votes will be awarded the funds collected through the entrance fee in order to complete their project.
Dinner will feature locally-sourced meats and fresh produce from Howard’s Organic Fare & Vegetable Patch, and the traveling cocktail club Hawthorne & Julep will be serving farm fresh beverages for purchase. Dinner and presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m., but come early for the City Ice Arts open house and to view the “Local Earth” exhibition between 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 (+$1.37 processing fee) and must be purchased in advance! Get ’em here: www.urbangrownbread.eventbrite.com .
