Miami Light Project Hosts Potluck Supper for Art Enthusiasts
Forget catered parties and swank affairs. Homemade eats and casual conversation are where it's at these days. This weekend, art enthusiasts can get a little bit of both at the Miami Light Project's (MLP) cozy Community Supper.
The group is hosting a BYOF (bring-your-own-food) potluck this Saturday at the Light Box at Goldman Warehouse. Attendees will mingle with fellow locals, get a sneak preview of the MLP's upcoming season - and nosh on some homemade grub.
"We had a lot of success with our friends' dinner last year, as well as with this amazing choreographer Radhouane el Meddeb. [His show] had a community feeding aspect to it because he cooked this amazing meal. So we really wanted to create a moment that was about fellowship and welcoming and really have an opportunity for the community to come to the Lightbox and share something together," said Rebekah Lengel, Managing Producer with the MLP.
The community supper, as it's dubbed, is limited to 100 people, and each attendee is asked to bring a savory dish or baked good that feeds eight to 10 people (so now's the time to break out your gram's legendary potato salad recipe).
MLP is a non-profit organization that works to support the arts in South Florida by sponsoring live performances, helping local artists and hosting educational programs. Basically, they help the 305 up its culture quotient.
Supper attendees will also be able to buy tickets to the season's shows before sales go live on the website on October 14.
