The Hideaway presented its first event today, Bitter/Sweet “The Artist at Work” I chose to prepare Morg Tanoori and Morg Fessenjan as the main entrée as they are both dishes that many Iranian families prepare for their guests. We had a great night! The dialogue was encouraging, as the patrons got to know each other while enjoying a four-course meal. I got good feedback and a chance to explain how this project works, The Hideaway facilitates The Artist Sustainability Project, it is my hope to build a network of sustainable studios that allow artists a pedestal to stand on. In these recession times, “The Artist at Work” is my effort to reinvent modes of survival; drawing attention to the way we make ends meet, while we pursue our passion.
