The Creative Alliance has released the line-up of this fall's edition of its Art to Dine For fundraising dinners. The schedule includes some 30 dinners, brunches, cocktail parties and get-togethers, taking guests inside artist studios, private homes, galleries, public parks and even a cemetery.
The first event, on Sept. 10, is Backstage Scoop, "an evening, white wine and high energy" with Center Stage artistic director Kwame Kwei-Armah, held at the Roland Park home of Creative Alliance trustees Ed Peres and Lindy Lord.
The season concludes on Nov. 10 at the Green Spring Valley home of Pam Berman, former president of the Contemporary Museum for an "avant-garde evening with artist Jordan Bernier."
The cost for attending Art to Dine For parties ranges from $40 to $125. Some of the parties have more of a food focus than others. Chef Chris Golder is preparing seasonal dishes at the Sept. 29 Cooking with Heart & Soul party. Charm City Chews owner Sharon Reuter escorts a walking and tasting tour through Baltimore's once-bustling Chinatown on Oct. 13. And on Nov. 4, Spike Gjerde is preparing the food for the Jeweler and the Chef event at Mary De Marco's Clipper Mill studio.
