Join us for supper and explore contemporary southern culture through art and food!

This season, our exhibitions and programs examine various aspects of Southern identity and culture.  What makes Southern culture unique, and how do we reconcile our past with the present? Join us for a family-style meal inside the gallery where you can celebrate the intricacies of the Southern experience with new friends. Tickets are $50 and include dinner and two drinks. Proceeds go toward furthering Artspace’s mission of inspiring positive community impact through art. We seek to foster a thriving arts community for all throughout the Southeast.
