Masterpiece Dinner Series

Masterpiece Dinners include a public art lecture followed by a chef-prepared dinner inside an artist’s studio.

Gage Academy of Art is excited to announce the 2018-19 season of the Masterpiece Dinners: a series of immersive dining experiences that take an intimate look at seminal periods in art history, through a scrumptious exploration of food, wine and art.

Masterpiece Dinners are private events that coincide with select Art History Lectures at Gage’s Capitol Hill campus. Each dinner is unique with a menu and wine pairing designed by Capitol Cider’s culinary team to reflect the evening’s lecture topic.

Masterpiece Dinners take place immediately following lectures in Gage’s Madison Studio with availability for ten guests, plus the host and lecturer (12 people in total). The intimate setting and immersive experience make Masterpiece Dinners ideal occasions for entertaining friends, family, and clients. The cost is $1,000 ($900 of this is tax-deductible).

Apollo and Daphne by Gianlorenzo Bernini, 1622–25
