Dining for the Arts is getting a social distancing makeover! Reservations will open on Monday, July 6 at noon! View menu options here: DftA 2020 menu flyer
This year, the Arts Center is partnering with community-based restaurants and wineries to create our very first carry-out Dining for the Arts. This event, which for many years has seen supporters of the Arts Center opening their homes and hosting dinners for guests who pay to attend, has long been a vital source of financial support for our programming. Since guests are unable to gather right now, we’ve transformed Dining for the Arts into an event our supporters can enjoy in their own homes – while helping local restaurants at the same time.
Participating restaurants and wineries have created special menus available only for Dining for the Arts patrons. Instead of hosts, we have event sponsors, covering the costs of creating these meals and supporting our local businesses. Instead of our annual cocktail party to kick off the Dining for the Arts season, we’re sharing these menus online. And instead of signing up in person, you’ll reserve meals online or by phone through the Arts Center, and contact the restaurant to place your order and arrange pickup. All proceeds from meals sold benefit the Ashtabula Arts Center.
We’ll also be holding an online auction for gift baskets generously donated by James Mayer of Huffman-Mayer-Paolo Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, and beautifully arranged by Judy Mudd. All proceeds will benefit the Ashtabula Arts Center. View items and bid here.
Dining for the Arts has always been about celebrating community, creativity, and cuisine, and while we may not be able to celebrate together this year, we can still celebrate. The financial support of our community is more vital right now than ever, for both the Arts Center and the local businesses partnering with us. We thank you for joining us.
