The Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory’s annual Farm to Table Feast benefit shows off the fact that there’s more to the facility than a drab utilitarian building. Sequestered behind its workshop is a beautiful space that includes its Sam Caraboolad Kozo Garden, the largest paper mulberry garden in the country, which its artists turn into handmade paper to create artworks.
Lanterns will light the garden as guests drink craft cocktails, savor a three-course dinner prepared by Richard Gray III and Angel Zimmerman of Larder Delicatessen and Bakery, and dance to live music by the Glenn Holmes Jazz Trio. Art demonstrations will give patrons a chance to delve into what the Morgan does, and the silent and live art auctions will offer them a shot at acquiring a piece created by an artist who has worked there.
Tickets are $125. Proceeds benefit the maintenance and expansion of the garden.
