Seasonal Special Happenings

Garlic Mashed Thoughtatoes at Spaces

When: Thu., June 16 2011

It's a mash-up for the mind tonight at SPACES Gallery, when artistic types from assorted backgrounds come together for two hours of free-range conversation. Tonight's version of the gabfest (officially known as Garlic Mashed Thoughtatoes) finds Akron collective Rainbow Lightening guiding audience members through their cavescape installation. Also on the menu: staffers from local urban oases Gather 'Round Farm and Let It Bee Garden digging into agricultural conversation with Cleveland puppeteer Diana Sette. And adding his own lagniappe to the proceedings is Michael Ruhlman, Cleveland Heights' culinary authority, food-television celebrity, pal to Tony Bourdain, and author of The Soul of a Chef among many other books. "Mostly, we have no idea where the conversation will go," says SPACES director Christopher Lynn. "It's always exciting to see what comes up." Plus, there are real mashed potatoes! It's all free and open to the public at SPACES, the region's premier public forum for artists who explore and experiment. Find them from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at 2220 Superior Viaduct.
