Art Over Dinner is a series of intimate gatherings with artists and the organizations that support their work.

Serenbe collaborates with the chefs at HomespunATL and local farmers to bring a seasonal meal that showcases winemakers and brewers, and invite guest artists to spark the conversation at one long farm table on the outdoor deck of The Art Farm at Serenbe. This evening will include a collaborative performance by Atlanta Opera Artist-In-Residence Jayme Alilaw and multi-disciplinary artist Masud Olufani.
