Toledo Museum of Art Schedules EpiCuratorial Wine Dinner on March 22

The Toledo Museum of Art will kick off a new series of art-themed wine dinners this spring. The EpiCuratorial Art Dinner in the Peristyle on March 22 will have the theme of Roman antiquities. A sumptuous Roman feast with paired Italian wines will be accompanied by lively presentations about some of the works in TMA's ancient art collection.

At this special dinner, learn about some of the ancient Roman artwork in the TMA collection while savoring a Roman-inspired meal paired with authentic Italian wines. Afterward, enjoy a sneak peek of the newly reinstalled Classic Court not yet open to the public.

Carolyn Putney, director of collections, and Andrea Mall, associate registrar, share their knowledge of Roman culture and antiquities. TMA Executive Chef Drew Ruiz has put together a sumptuous six-course menu, each course paired with a different red or white wine.

Seating is limited; reservations are required. Tickets ($100 members/$115 nonmembers) can be purchased March 2–8, and include presentation, dinner, wine, tax and gratuity. Call 419-255-8000 ext. 7432. Click here for the menu and other details: http://www.toledomuseum.org/events/romanwinedinner
