How can you help build affordable artist studios in Pittsburgh? It's easy. Join us for dinner.
Fresh greens, tomatoes, peaches, watermelon and corn... oh yeah. Late summer may be the tastiest time of the year. And coming up in August we're taking advantage of the seasonal bounty, by hosting a new summer Studio Dinner Series. To craft a savory social experience, we selected the perfect ingredients: fine food, beautiful art, a unique setting, and stimulating company. (Yes, there will even be real live artists there!) All proceeds go directly to supporting Radiant Hall's continued operations.
We're excited to share the summer lineup, which includes the Bar Marco's famed bartenders, who will be our cocktail experts for the evening.
August 2, 4: artist Michael Lotenaro will welcome us at his spacious new studio in the Strip District. Michael is an award-winning designer, illustrator and artist whose 20+ career has spanned from clients such as Pepsi and Nintendo, to oversized sketchbooks, created from chopping up original works on paper and found elements and handbinding them together. His practice also includes painting and sculpture. Featured artists Nicole Ryan, Terry Boyd, and Jesse Best will join as dinner guests and display their work.
By joining us for dinner, you are helping artists all across Pittsburgh make art, instead of worrying about how they'll make rent. Artists do so much for our city, from attracting new investment to educating and inspiring our kids. In return, artists need Pittsburgh (that's all of us!) to continue providing them with safe, affordable studios, so they can do what they do best.
Still unsure? We'll let Christina French, from Table Magazine, have the final word:
“My dinner tonight was full of intelligent, artistic, fun and celebratory friends. The food itself was unbelievable. More to come on this via TABLE magazine’s page tomorrow, but my, my goodness, Mr. Ryan Lammie and Radiant Hall artists, you make this city shine! Thank you.”
We're looking forward to seeing you at dinner. RSVP online at StudioDinnerSeries.com
This series is produced by Treading Art.
