Friday Night Food for the Arts Barbecues

Performances and exhibitions are just a small part of a rich creative process. In this series, artists share work in progress, critical writing, and conversations over a community meal. Join us for an inside look at current artistic trends while enjoying a home-cooked meal made fresh from the Mount Tremper Arts organic garden. In nice weather, events will include a campfire and sunset in the garden.

7-9pm, $15 all-inclusive. Make your reservation on by the Wednesday prior to the event you wish to attend.
