Cuisine des Artistes 2008!
May 28, 2008 at Meridian House
Cuisine des Artistes is a bi-annual spring fundraiser held for the DC Arts Center. This unique event showcases the talents of local area chefs and artists who collaborate to create works of edible art.
The night begins at 6:30 with a cocktail hour featuring artist produced appetizers. Around 7:45 the main course is unveiled: tapas-style samplings of chef-artist creations presented at 6 - 10 stations with patrons moving from place to place to make their own unique feast. Finally, desserts and coffee are offered at two to three similar stations accompanied by performances by musicians, poets, and performance artists.
This year marks a new addition to the evening, the presentation of the Herb White Award. Named after DCAC founder and DC arts patron Herb White, the award is designed to honor an unsung person who has given of their time and energy beyond the call of duty to benefit the arts in Washington.
