What is in store for this special event
3:00 pm: A shuttle departs from Bennington Museum. Arrive at the Hall Art Foundation for cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres followed by a docent-led private tour. The Hall Art Foundation is situated on a former dairy farm in Vermont and consists of a converted 19th-century stone farmhouse and three barns that house an extensive collection of postwar and contemporary art works.
6:30 pm: The shuttle takes the group to SoLo Farm & Table for a delicious dinner. SoLo Farm & Table combines warmth and sophisticated farm-to-table dining set in an 18th century farmhouse in South Londonderry, Vermont. After years of restaurant experience in Manhattan and Europe, husband and wife team Chloe & Wesley Genovart relocated from the city and opened SoLo in 2011. Offering a seasonal ingredient-driven menu that is ever evolving and changing,SoLo is hyper focused on quality and sustainability, as well as simplicity.
After dinner the shuttle returns to Bennington Museum arriving by 10:30 pm.
