Holiday Fun + Frank Lloyd Wright @ Pasture
All are invited to join us at Pasture for an evening of fun, food, and Frank Lloyd Wright as we celebrate another successful year of Modern Richmond. Honoring the southern tradition of sharing delicious food with friends and family, Chef Jason Alley and the team at Pasture serve up a new experience in southern dining with ingredients drawn from a roster of top Virginia farmers and producers. Three years ago, Pasture helped lead the charge in what has become a rebirth of one of Richmond's classic retail districts on East Grace Street. Join us on Tuesday as we learn about the transformation of a former high-end clothing store into a culinary destination. If you missed any events in 2014 we have you covered - there will be a rolling slideshow offering a look back at a year of top-notch modern design.
We are also excited to welcome author and architect Steven M. Reiss who will share his recently published book: Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House. The book celebrates the 75th anniversary of journalist Loren Pope commissioning Frank Lloyd Wright to design a Usonian house for he and his wife Charlotte. It is one of only three Wright designed houses in Virginia and is a must-visit for fans of great architecture. Wright’s Usonian homes remind us that small, carefully built structures should be the starting point of sustainable and environmentally responsible design. The book also makes an excellent stocking stuffer for that design-nerd on your holiday shopping list.
We look forward to seeing everyone at Pasture as we toast the holiday season with friends new and old.
Speakers: Jason Alley, Chef, Ry Merchant + Michele Jones, co-owners // Author + Architect Steven M. Reiss
Time: 5:30 – 7:30, speakers at 6:15.
*In the spirit of the season, we are supporting Michele Jones' Case for Hope at our holiday event. The organization is collecting small unwrapped gifts for children in Richmond Foster care ages 14 and up. They suggest lotions, body spray, hats, scarves, gloves. Just a small something to let them know they are remembered at the holidays.
Cost: Modern Richmond events are free, but a suggested cash donation of $5 per person is appreciated.
