Starving Artist 2012
Starving Artist is Chicago Artists’ Coalition’s annual benefit that pairs the city’s most inspiring visual artists with its most innovative culinary talent. For this year’s event, Starving Artist will offer a high-energy and interactive evening where attendees will engage directly with the creative environment of unique art and food installations.
Redefining the age-old concept of the “starving artist,” CAC’s event puts four local artists in the spotlight, pairing each with a like-minded chef. Their assignment: inspire each other to create both edible “installations” to be enjoyed by the crowd and new works of art, which will be auctioned off the night of the event.
FEATURED ARTIST & CHEF PAIRINGS:
Artist Laura Letinsky with Food Preservationist Tara Lane of Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
Artist Jeanne Dunning with Executive Chef Jared Van Camp of Nellcote
Artist Erik Peterson with Sous Chef/Head Butcher Erling Wu-Bower of Publican Quality Meats
Artist Jenny Kendler with Executive Chef Beverly Kim of Bonsoirée
