Comida y Arte, ART from the ashes' art x food pop up, opens on April 25th at the Wine Vault. Cordero Negro chef Sandra Cordero will prepare a three course Spanish-themed meal centered on two types of paella. Diners will feast upon Chef Cordero's spanish-themed meal while seated amidst over 60 works of art by LA area artists. The works were created for this exhibition with the theme of food x art in mind.
$40 pre-fixe menu includes a meat or vegetarian choice of: an amuse, an ensalada with crispy jamon and pequillo pepper dressing, a choice of two different paellas ("tierro y mar" or spring vegetables) and mousse de chocolate with citrus infused cream.
A portion of the proceeds from Comida y Arte will be donated to support ART from the ashes’ 2013 arts programming which will include: Wellness Works in May, annual Inspire Exhibition in fall 2013 and Hurricane Sandy Relief exhibition in New York City.
Opening Reception Thursday April 25th 7.30-10pm
Dining April 26 & 27 6-10pm
Formed in 2007, ART from the ashes is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit arts organization whose mission is to support communities through the cathartic property of art. We assemble a collective of artists who create one-of-a-kind works of art utilizing materials reclaimed from disaster site locations, which then provide the framework for a benefit art exhibition to support the community’s recovery.
Our belief is that art is a powerful vehicle to bring community together. The evolution of this vision has led to the development of community partnership programming outside of disaster relief focused on art, education, health and environment.
