Mix’d Media: Darwin’s Legacy January 7, 2014 | By Admin
We will be celebrating our exhibit Darwin’s Legacy: The Evolution of Wildlife Art with a bit of friendly competition on Thursday, January 9, 2014 from 6-9 pm. The exhibit examines the relationship between science and wildlife art. The Mix’d Media program will expand that concept by exploring the culinary arts through one of Darwin’s most famous theories. We’ve invited three local chefs to create food with a “survival of the fittest” theme. Rising Sage Chef, Itzel Mendoza and the Museum’s own Manager of Events, Wendy Merrick will present one of the food and drink stations. JH Fine Dining chefs Matt Melehes and Joel Tate will prepare delicious fare, paired with beer poured by Park Dunn-Morrison, GM of Roadhouse Brewing Co. Private Chef Jason Mitchell will work with Private Mixologist Kattie Le Mieux for the third pairing of food and drink. Finally, Pastry Chef Lizzie Heineken will delight us with artistic sweets. Museum members will get in FREE to the evening of food and drink, while non-members will get to taste all of the culinary art for just $5. There will also be a cash bar.
DJ Jefe will provide a musical compliment to the fine food and cocktails throughout the evening.
Visitors will also be invited to ponder Darwin’s scientific fascination with bugs by making an insect print.
Join us to find out just what the 8 local food and drink artists have prepared to meet the challenge!
