Spring 2018: April 27 - May 6

Art of Food Gallery

In the fall of 2015, ArtWeek began celebrating creativity each season with the Art of Food. We have tapped the creative genius behind the hospitality and restaurant sector and these partner restaurants feature a special ArtWeek menu item inspired by a piece of art, a favorite album, artist or an arts group – where nothing is off the table! The best part? Some of these restaurants have generously committed to making a contribution that will purchase arts supplies for local schools, libraries and community centers. See the gallery below for past entries. If you’re a restaurant, bartender, or chef who would like to join us next season, please email artweek@bochcenter.org.
