One Great Event! post pics from the spectacularly successful 100 mile dinner.

On Friday the 28th Like the Spice hosted an amazing dinner, the first in a monthly series of dinners featuring inventive delicious food and talks by artists. This premiere dinner focused on issues of sustainability and climate change, issues explored in the current show, Anna Druzcz: Endemic Constructions.

Artist Eve Mosher gave a talk about her highwaterline project which marks the places in and around New York City likely to become unlivable in the near future because of climate change related flooding.

The food, catered by Urban Spring, was produced as close as possible to the gallery, most within 100 miles, making it low emissions and it was all farmed by small organic farms.

The combination of food, thought and art was very successful. The sold out event was a fun chance to meet interesting people in a relaxed setting with amazing thoughtful food. Watch out for the next installment of this monthly dinner coming to Like the Spice later this month.
