Starving Artist is Chicago Artists Coalition’s annual benefit that pairs the city’s most inspiring visual artists with its most innovative culinary talent. Their assignment is to inspire each other to create edible “installations” and new works of art to be auctioned off the night of the event. Each artist + chef course is presented in a unique, experiential and performative way. This whimsical, one of a kind event reinvents the traditional idea of a fundraiser.
Featured artist + chef pairings include:
*Theaster Gates + Erick Williams of MK
*Sabina Ott + Bill Kim of BellyQ, Urban Belly and Belly Shack
*Stacia Yeapanis (BOLT Resident) + Fabio Viviani of Top Chef and Siena Tavern
*Cody Hudson + Jared Wentworth of Longman & Eagle
*Jordan Martins (HATCH Projects artist) + Abraham Conlon of Fat Rice
*Marissa Lee Benedict (BOLT Resident) + Benjamin Newby of Hennessy Black
All proceeds benefit the Chicago Artists Coalition’s mission and programs for local artists.
