MARY Art Inspiration Day & Birthday TankerTours
Celebrate the 81th birthday of our ship MARY A. WHALEN with two options: As of 8:00am, come make art inspired by our ship. As of 1:00pm, we offer free public tours of our ship.
Are you a painter, sketcher, illustrator, poet, photographer? Come create work inspired by MARY and our evocative maritime location. Find colleagues who are similarly inspired.
We expect many plein air painters, and the Urban Sketchers are involved. We can offer digital exhibit space in our e-museum Red Hook WaterStories for work created that day.
Join Pioneer Works staff, artists-in-residence, and friends in our garden for happy hour. Each event spotlights a local chef or culinary organization. This month’s Happy Hour features Poppy’s Brooklyn.
Poppy’s Happy Hour menu of free small bites includes grilled flatbread with comté, chili oil, and spring greens, seasonal vegetable crudités with pumpkin seed herb dip, and a choice of baharat spiced steak kabob, sumac chicken kabob, and vegetable bamboo boats.
Since 2012, Poppy’s mission has been to create simple, seasonal, beautiful, and approachable food. We believe that the highest quality food and service does not need to feel formal or unattainable. We believe in supporting local farmers, sustainability, eating with our eyes, and nourishing our community. Poppy’s is based in Cobble Hill and operates a weekend café; a gathering place for neighbors, followers, friends, and family. Poppy’s is a woman owned business run by women.
