With the explosion Instagram and Twitter feeds full of foodies documenting their dinners, The Chicago Artists Coalition tapped into art as cuisine, and hosts its third annual Starving Artist extravaganza June 29 at 217 N. Carpenter.
The gig pairs Chicago artists with local chefs, who collaborate on both a dish and a visual work. In addition to the culinary/artist teams, the event also showcases the work of "artisanal food installations."
Diners: Take note of the pairings:
• Artist Incubator founder Theaster Gates and Erick Williams of MK
• Stacia Yeapanis (BOLT Resident) and Top Chef fan favorite and Siena Tavern proprietor Fabio Viviano
• Cody Hudson (of recent Nike LunarGlide+ 4 2012 Chicago Marathon running shoe fame) and Jared Wentworth of Longman & Eagle
Presale general admission tickets are $100 ($125 after June 15) and can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
