Art & Wine Pairing
Instead of pairing wine with cheese, we’ll be pairing artworks with wine!*
Have you ever been in a gallery or a museum and heard someone talk about art and wondered how they can just – talk about art? Have you ever been drinking wine and wondered how people taste and smell so many things (without drinking even more wine….)?
With this fun and informal event, we’ll break down two activities that can be daunting to a beginner and make it seem like you need a certain level of expertise to tackle. Pairing wines with works of art featured in Art of the State 2019, participants will likely draw some parallels and begin to foster an understanding of both art and wine that you would have never thought possible. Covering some basics about art appreciation and wine tasting, you’ll get five 2oz. tastes of wine paired with five pieces of art throughout Arvada Center’s three gallery spaces.
Kristin Bueb, Arvada Center Exhibition Manager, who is also a certified Wine Manager, will curate 5 Colorado Wines and 5 Colorado Artworks for this evening. An appetizer will be provided with each pairing.
*There will also definitely be cheese
Friday February 15th 4 - 5:30 p.m.
Tickets: $25 per person
