The Color Palate Project

Thursday - Sunday, March 26 - 29
Admission:
$50 10 course prix fixe, $75 with wine pairing
Showtime:
7:30pm (additional 10pm seating Friday and Saturday)
reservations are recommended

The Color Palate Project is an exploration of color, where 10 international artists have been invited to present their take on one color.

The presentation will be an inside out experience of 10 different colors from the color spectrum. The viewer is seated and completely surrounded by projections of the color and the artwork. While immersed in the visuals, the guest is served a monochrome dish in the color presented.

The idea is to open up all of the senses and to have an experience as a whole, where the awareness of vision, smell, taste and hearing are used and explored simultaneously with the full experience of the work and color presented.
