The Artful Lobster Returns

Posted by brodgers on 15th October 2010

It’s that time of year again, the time when the Lobsters begin their long trek from the cold waters of Maine, to the warm waters and gentle breezes of the Gulf of Mexico – no easy trip for a creature with 8 legs and two claws. But the Artful Lobster is no average crustacean and we appear right on schedule for our November 20th date.

For those of your new to this fun event, The Artful Lobster is the only annual fundraiser held on the Hermitage campus, and the only time when you can be guaranteed that all studios will be open and that a full compliment of artists will be there for you to meet and speak with.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and features a New England feast prepared by Phil Mancini and his staff of Michael’s On East. You can look forward to 1 ½ pound Maine Lobsters with drawn butter, mesquite grilled chicken, St. Louis Barbecue Ribs, New England Clam Chowder, Corn on the Cob, Red Skin Potatoes, Corn bread, and a salad station.

In addition to the delicious menu, you will enjoy a special display of art for enjoyment and for purchase by Hermitage Fellows; music by Los Rumberos; a short, live auction with exciting items and vacations, Cliff Roles auctioneer; four Hermitage artists (a performer/composer, a photographer, a poet, and a painter); tours through our historic buildings; perfect weather; unforgettable views; and great friends.

Stay tuned to our blog as we will profile each of the artists who you will have a chance to meet, and whose work you will see and hear in exhibition, reading, and performance. More details about auction items and other exciting activities for the afternoon will be posted on our Artful Lobster web page. This is going to be great!
