I’m very pleased to announce that Cultural Pursuit members are invited to a special evening of art and cultural conversation – and cocktails! This is a complimentary event (free of charge) to thank Business Affiliate partners, sponsors and major donors – and a great way to introduce those of you who haven’t visited, to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.
· Exclusive, gallery tour of their summer exhibition – MAIZE: Mysteries of an Ancient Grain
· Tasting of hand-crafted, corn-based spirits from Litchfield Distillery
· Maize-based small bites from Fiesta on Main, Stamford’s favorite Peruvian restaurant
This special, invitation-only Salon Series event will feature an exclusive gallery tour of their summer exhibition, MAIZE: Mysteries of an Ancient Grain, by Curator Kirsten Reinhardt, who will also introduce John Dowell, Professor Emeritus of Printmaking at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. John is a noted photographer of agricultural landscapes, and he will speak about several of his large-scale photos of corn that will be exhibited as part of this fascinating new exhibition.
What’s more, they’re delighted to host Jack and David Baker, co-owners of Litchfield Distillery, Connecticut’s newest micro-distillery. The Bakers – whose family founded Crystal Rock Water 100 years ago in Stamford, will present a tasting of Litchfield Distillery’s hand-crafted spirits, most of which is distilled from corn grown by Lion Rock Farm in Sharon, Connecticut.
To round out the evening’s menu of fun and fellowship, their friends from Fiesta on Main, Stamford’s favorite Peruvian restaurant, will be serving up an array of corn themed “small bites.” Other appetizers, wine and beer will be served.
This sounds like a fun evening – I hope to see you there!
Please RSVP to Laura by Thursday, July 13th.
