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 lunch. Each event spotlights a local chef or culinary organization. This month’s lunch features chef DeVonn Francis of Yardy.
Lunch menus will become available a month before each event. Lunch will include a beverage. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available.
Yardy is an event and production company with Caribbean origins, focused on making meaningful stories through food and art. Our desire is to create and stage experiences that recognize the dinner table as an indelible site for artistic and social engagement. We bring people together to explore heritage, encourage play, prioritizing the communal and familial.
