Wine, Cheese & Art - A Virtual Happy Hour Series with GRAM & Aperitivo: Reds/Whites

View Map

The Grand Rapids Art Museum and Aperitivo are excited to offer GRAM Members an experience where we bring artwork, wine, and cheese into your home! The series continues with an exploration of RED, in wine, art, and cheese. Each wine and cheese pairing will be selected by the Aperitivo staff and paired with extraordinary artwork from GRAM’s permanent collection, thematically tied together by this month’s theme of reds.

The evening will be guided by Dana Friis-Hansen, Director & CEO of GRAM, Amy Ruis, Owner of Art of the Table & Aperitivo, and Evan Talen, General Manager of Aperitivo. Learn about how wine and cheesemaking, and the culinary experience, has parallels in artmaking and how we experience visual art in the world. You will also hear about the history and background of the artwork as well as the products we are tasting, and why these particular pieces and products are so special to us. We can’t wait to spend the evening with you!
