Gregg Moore: Heirloom

Thu May 22 to Sun August 17, 2014

Gregg Moore: Heirloom

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 22 from 6-8 PM

Heirloom, a unique installation by artist and designer Gregg Moore, will transform the PAA's ground floor galleries into both a traditional exhibition of objects and a public space to dine. Heirloom will bring audiences into a conversation about making, buying, and eating that links the fields of art, craft, and design, with the practices of farming and gardening. Moore uses ceramics' unique relationship to the earth and the table to explore the deep connection between local agriculture and consumerism.  

A series of family-style meals, Table D'Hôte developed through an inspired collaboration between Moore and renowned chef Pierre Calmels of Le Chéri. Calmels and Moore share a reverence for technique and craftsmanship in their respective fields, and neither has ever embarked on a project quite like this.     

To Book a Reservation for Table D'Hôte:   These seven-course, family style dinners are a prix-fixe menu, developed in collaboration with chef Pierre Calmels of Le Chéri. They will be served from Wednesday through Sunday from May 23 to August 10 at 5:30 pm. To place a reservation, please contact the restaurant, Le Cheri at Reservations@lecheriphilly.com or call 215.546.7700
