With The Wolf's Tailor Chef: Kelly Whitaker
On June 24th the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver welcomed guests to a unique in-person experience - the Against All Odds Fundraising Dinner with Chef Kelly Whitaker of the nationally recognized The Wolf’s Tailor. The evening benefited the museum's efforts in celebration of art in its most vital, relevant, and breathtaking forms. Chef Whitaker’s inspired cuisine from collaborations and travels through Italian kitchens and Asian night markets was impressively curated using a portico grill affixed safely within the urban alleyway next to the museum.
The evening began with an original dance to "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" by Sylvester, performed by Lisa Engelken, Davry Ratcliffe, Mahayla Rose, Valentino Valentine and choreographed by Denver-based artist Samantha Weese. Guests had the opportunity to privately view the current exhibitions before sitting down to an intimate, community-style dinner. As guests savored hand-made cuisine al fresco they heard an original poem read to them by Denver-based poet Eleanor Perry-Smith.
MCA Denver is excited to continue to bring back spectacular in-person experiences that support our efforts while providing a platform for creative expression and contemporary art. We hope to see you at one of our many upcoming events!
