Saturday, September 1 / Tickets $250
Inspiration arrives at Meeting Point, a unique feast featuring a multi-course dinner with pairings and offerings by artists-in-residence Tan Lin and Paul Pinto as well as Edisa Weeks, who’ll create signature hair designs for guests.
Mount Tremper Arts Chef Ethan Knechel (formerly of Reynard, Spotted Pig) and a special guest chef will prepare an exquisite dinner with produce harvested from the garden in collaboration with MTA gardener Anastacia Bolina, and from local farms.

Poet, novelist, filmmaker, and new media artist Tan Lin draws on and samples source material from popular culture and the Internet to address issues involving copyright, plagiarism, and technology. He is the author of over thirteen books. Paul Pinto creates and produces experimental music and theatrical works and is the founder and co-director of thingNY and Varispeed. His compositions blend chamber music with theater, centering on the human voice and the endurance of the human body. Multi-media artist, educator, and site-specific choreographer Edisa Weeks makes fantastically delirious hair art. Treat yourself to a hair design that assembles flora from MTA to sculpt a unique, mischievous, elegant or off-beat design that is created on the spot to match your personality and style.
Meeting Point supports year-round artist residencies with a spirited, evening-length distillation of MTA’s mission: the cultivation of community and creative exploration grounded in the expansive surrounds of the Catskill Mountains.
