What Does Art Taste Like?

Beginning February 19, 2018 through April 14, 2018, patrons will have an opportunity to visit 16 returning and newly participating culinary establishments to order a truly unique menu item: a drink OR a food creation inspired by a sculpture of the chef’s choosing.

Each of the 16 sculptures on the Walk is paired with only one local business. Each has control over how they interpret a sculpture and what they wish to charge the public to taste their creation.  This is not a fundraiser and all monies collected remain with the local businesses participating in the event – demonstrating the economic power art can have on our local economy.
