“In wine, there is truth.” – Pliny the Elder
"We must never forget that art... is a form of truth." – John F. Kennedy

Wine and Art – without a doubt, two of life's great pleasures, equally rich with evocative qualities. Join us for a celebration of both in this fundraiser for the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation.

Palate2Palette- an Evening of Wine+Art will present 10 unique and quality wines for your tasting pleasure. Each will be paired with a work of fine art, curated by Waltham-based artist Sallie Strand to complement and evoke that wine's qualities and tasting notes.

This piece, along with other works, will be on display in our Jackson Room function hall and available for purchase*. Many of these artists will be on hand to discuss their work, and wine representatives will discuss the selections in depth.

On our Main Gallery level, we will be presenting moderated Q&A sessions with wine professionals and featured artists in a fun, relaxed setting. Additionally, we will be offering a silent auction of exceptional items and services donated for this unique fundraising event. Hors d'oeuvres will be served throughout the evening.
