Dining for Art, A Grand Mingling, and the Historic Kenwood Public Art Initiative

When loads of artists live in your neighborhood, but you don’t see any art, what do you do? If you’re Historic Kenwood – Neighborhood of the Arts and home to the Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood – you create a public art initiative and a master plan. Art costs money, so how do you afford it? Well, for starters, you have some really good parties…and invite the public! All of the proceeds from these events support the Historic Kenwood Public Art Initiative, infusing creativity throughout the neighborhood.

On Sunday, October 21, the Historic Kenwood Public Art Committee will host A Grand Mingling.

This 3:00 – 6:00 pm party will be held at Kenwood Gables Boutique Bed and Breakfast, which is just opening after a full year’s renovation of this important 1934 Tudor Revival home. This event will be the capstone for Dining for Art, a series of more intimate parties held in homes throughout Historic Kenwood. Champagne and desserts created by a five-star pastry chef will delight guests. Kenwood’s own Doug Wilkins will provide classical and jazz music. Twelve artists, all members of the Historic Kenwood Artist Enclave (, will have works of art on display including sculpture, painting, photography, ceramics, stained glass, mosaic, and crafts. Most will be present to visit with guests and talk about their art. Several of the artists exhibit nationally.
