Fallen Fruit: The Dinner

May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$125 – $175

Fallen Fruit’s immersive installation The Way Out West has become a cornerstone of 21c Museum Hotel St. Louis. The installation uses the former YMCA’s historic stairwell as a frame for the deluge of color and images that share the carefully researched and sourced history of St. Louis, emphasizing the role of the city in westward expansion – The Way Our West. The artists show images gathered from all around St. Louis at different times of year and from a wide range of historic sources and natural landscapes, questioning the narratives which we proudly proclaim about our city and highlighting those buried in history.

Join David Allen Burns and Austin Young of the artist partnership Fallen Fruit and Idol Wolf Executive Chef Matthew Daughaday for an evening to celebrate Fallen Fruit’s The Way Out West. Just as Fallen Fruit confronts the notion that history unfurled from one perspective alone, Chef Daughaday will present a four-course meal made up of the lost recipes of St. Louis. The menu and the evening will bring together beauty, taste, and an exploration of our current moment in time through the notes and images that remain of the past.

What’s Included:

· Hors d’oeuvres and a signature cocktail

· A four-course meal inspired by The Way Out West by Fallen Fruit

· Wine pairing with each course

· A tour of the installation with artists Austin Young and David Allen Burns

· A custom object inspired by The Way Out West

· An opportunity for conversation and community
