The winter edition of Charlottesville SOUP is happening on Friday, March 7, 2014 at The Jefferson Theater.
This meal is a special edition of SOUP in partnership with the 2014 New City Arts Forum. We’re calling it SOUP at the Forum. The New City Arts Forum is a biennial conference that provides challenging content and artistic engagement for the Charlottesville community with a high emphasis on relationship building. The Forum is scheduled for March 6-8, 2014 with a focus on “Art, Food, and Community.” For SOUP at the Forum, we sought creative projects that connect to the Forum’s theme in some way. After careful consideration, the SOUP community panel selected four projects to present at SOUP at the Forum:
- Ashley Florence – an artist who wants to expand on her “Breadhead” series in a project inspired by Conflict Kitchen
- Shell Stern – a community organizer who wants to theatrically deliver pretzels from her cobb oven via bicycle while collecting oral histories in her Hogwaller neighborhood
- Aaron Fein – an artist who wants to explore the intersection of technology and art by making digital embroideries that serve as table runners
- City Schoolyard Garden – a non-profit organization that wants to build a mosaic in a garden at an area public school
SOUP at the Forum will take place at The Jefferson Theater (located on the Downtown Mall at 110 E Main St, Charlottesville, VA 22902). This special edition of SOUP is only open to attendees of the New City Arts Forum. Passes to the Forum are available via forum.newcityarts.org. Scholarships are available.
Charlottesville SOUP is officially hosted by New City Arts. Support for SOUP at the Forum is generously provided by Hill and Holler, A Pimento Catering, Skyline Tents, Sugar Magnolias, The Jefferson Theater, and Champion Brewing Company.
