Culture Catalysts at the Museum of Contemporary Art is a monthly series that provides a platform for Chicago-based influencers involved with art, cuisine, music, fashion, literature, and to share about their work. The March event features Martin Kastner was born in the Czech Republic, trained as a blacksmith and spent some time restoring historical metalworks at a castle in Western Bohemia before moving onto natural materials design and sculpture. His serviceware concepts helped put Alinea and Chef Grant Achatz at the pinnacle of contemporary cuisine. He is also the founder and principal of Crucial Detail.
