The NCMA, Vitis House, and Catering Works present The Art Inside the Bottle
Like painting and music, wine is an art, executed with feeling and passion. While nature works to strike the proper chords, the winemaker’s aim is to discover and evoke the very soul of the grape, just as the artist works to communicate through visual materials across time and distance.
This in-person event is a creative embrace of the reimagining of the People’s Collection. Together with NCMA associate curator of European art Michele Frederick and Vitis House owner and wine educator Doreen Colondres, we will dive into Identity, Place, and Power as themes that contextualize works of art and wine in specific and inspiring ways.
Join us for a special evening to explore the history, tradition, and process of winemaking and artmaking. You will foster new insights in an immersive, sensory experience. Seven wines with Catering Works’ custom-designed food pairings will be served as Dr. Frederick shares her expertise on seven important works of art from the Museum’s collection.
