I've been working with a wonderful non-profit organization called Vanguard Culture that promotes collaboration of various artistic industries since June of 2017 . During the duration of this partnership I have been asked to document some amazing events, but my favorite are the quarterly "An Artist @ The Table" series. Each dinner is located in a beautiful home where the owners have opened up their space to us to use as a platform for the dining experience. We bring in amazing Chefs to prepare the meals and each dinner features an Artist for the guests to converse with while they dine.
This dinner was curated by a very talented chef, Aaron Obregon from the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa. Our featured Artist was Dame Zandra Rhodes, an iconic fashion designer who has made built her career utilizing vibrant textiles and stimulating textures. Chef Obregon did an amazing job creating dishes that all reflect Dame Rhode’s fashion and her ability to create in such colorful ways.
