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 Kia Damon.
The lunch menu will include Turmeric Spiced Roasted Chickpeas, Not Grandma’s Potato Salad, Grilled Fava Beans with Mint, Achiote Wings, and Lemon-Sorghum Bars. All lunches will come with a beverage. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available.
Kia Damon is a Florida-born, self-taught chef turned executive chef in Chinatown, Manhattan. Kia began her journey doing pop ups and dinner parties. Now, she runs the eclectic, Latin-Caribbean inspired restaurant, Lalito, that is reapproaching the way people look at foods of the diaspora. Through cooking, she hopes to continue to break boundaries and create a new normal for women, people of color, and her QTPOC community.
