On Thursday, July 14, IACC partner Jeremy Parzen, author of the popular Italian food and culture blog Do Bianchi, will be leading a Prosecco tasting at the Amon Carter Museum in Ft. Worth.
Jeremy, who studied in Venice as a doctoral candidate, is not only a lively speaker but also an expert on all things Venetian.
The event will be followed by a lecture on American painters in Venice during the 19th century and how they were influenced by the Murano glass works there. (The image above is an engraving created by Whistler during his time in Venice.)
Alex Mann, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Chief Curator at Telfair Museums, and Carter curator Maggie Adler will be leading the discussion.
Guests will then have the opportunity to view the museum’s current exhibit, “Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass:American Artists and the Magic of Murano.”
Click here to reserve for this free event, including the wine and food tasting and a cocktail hour. Spots at the Prosecco tasting will be given on a first come, first served basis.
We look forward to sharing a glass of Prosecco with you in Ft. Worth in July!
The Prosecco wine and food tasting has been sponsored by the Italian government’s ongoing Extraordinary Italian Taste campaign, which promotes authentic Italian wines, foods, and foodways.
