Indiana Landmarks Inspire New Event Mixing Food and Art
The Bent Rail Brewery will host i3, Indulge.Imbibe.Imagine, from 4 to 8 p.m. on July 12, a new and unique event from Dig IN, creators of the Taste of Indiana festival. Five local chefs, bartenders and artists will combine to provide a unique experience for the senses.
Each trio of these professionals are given an Indiana landmark to serve as inspiration. Chefs Craig Baker, Abbi Merriss, Layton Roberts, Tyler Herald and Brandon Canfield create dishes inspired by Angel Mounds, the Indiana Dunes, Monument Circle, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and James Whitcomb Riley’s Tomb, while artists John McKee, Lorie Lee Andrews, Quincy Adams, Erin Huber and Jeffrey Teuton create unique and original art fitting each theme. The art pieces will be auctioned on August 30 at the Taste of Indiana festival.
The event takes place in the new outdoor space at Bent Rail Brewery and includes live acoustic music and friendly competition, as spectators vote for their favorite dish, artist and drink combination.
