Hosted by René Romero Schuler at Froggy’s Restaurant
An avant-garde evening is upon us when Froggy’s in Highwood hosts the next Salon Series Dinner. On May 21st, the downstairs dining room transforms into a private art gallery dedicated to the art of artist Danielle Klinenberg, of Chicago, IL. Danielle’s robust and expressive watercolors are sure to intrigue!
The Salon Dinner construct is loosely modeled on the precedent established by Gertrude Stein, the enigmatic and influential art dealer who lived in Paris in the early 20th Century. The format of these very lush dinners allows for a much greater level of intimacy between the artist, collectors, and other arts enthusiasts.
The evening’s conversation is facilitated by renowned Chicago artist, René Romero Schuler, who will challenge and enlighten by establishing comfortable dialogues between the artist and guests. 6:30pm cocktails will be followed by an exquisite dinner prepared by Chef Thierry LeFeuvre, who rolls out a five-course meal inspired by the installation. Accompanying each course comes a special wine pairing selected by Froggy’s Sommelier, Alain Rochelemagne.
The whole evening is very beautiful, very civilized, somewhat more academic or scholarly than many gallery events and hopefully very stimulating. It is our intention that this initiative creates a renewed vigor for discourse that is rooted in the depths of people’s hearts, minds and souls. We are convinced that most people are curious and interested, yet they often feel intimidated to really delve into the art world because of a fear of seeming unknowledgeable. Our goal is to create and amplify a more active advocacy for the primacy of the visual arts in American and global popular culture.
Priced at $90 (which includes tax and gratuity), the evening kicks off with a 6:30pm reception followed by a 7:15pm seating. Space is limited so reserve yours today by calling 847-433-7080.
