The NC Museum of Art, Vitis House, and Catering Works present The Art Inside the Bottle. Angel Gonzalez, Research Curator of the Ancient American collection, together with Vitis House owner and wine educator, Doreen Colondres will examine Identity, Place, and Power. The premise is that these themes are shared by the creative, culture-specific disciplines of art and wine. Join us from 7pm-9pm for a sensory experience that explores history, tradition, and process to reveal new insights. Featuring six ancient art objects and six outstanding wines plus food pairings, this in-depth presentation takes place in the seated dining area of the West Building. We will do our best to provide accommodation as requested.
This 90-minute event celebrates the transformative, five-month-long reinstallation of the Museum’s collection by taking up three themes that informed the reimagining of our galleries: Identity, Place, and Power. Curators have selected works of art to feature with the wines, and you will learn the reasons for our choices. Similarly, to reveal the place, identity, or power of a wine is to invite a crucial understanding of its excellence and significance. When we examine these elements together, we can truly appreciate that wine is more than fermented grape juice we pour into a nice glass.
Join us on January 19th from 7pm-9pm at the NC Museum of Art for a very special evening to explore the history, tradition, and process of winemaking at The Art Inside the Bottle. As you foster new insights that await you in the galleries, be immersed in a sensory experience of fabulous wines, specially curated food pairings, and eye-opening works of art!
You will foster new insights in an immersive, sensory experience! Seven wines with custom-designed food pairings will be served as Maya speaks in person to share her expertise on seven important works of art from the Museum’s Collection.
