Dinner Series funding artists’ projects at Rattos! Starting February 10th

Rattos is pleased to  that we will be hosting a new initiative called Oakland Stock.

Monthly Micro-granting Sunday Dinner Series Funds Local Art

Announcing a new dinner series called Oakland Stock. Join us for the first micro-granting meal Sunday, February 10th 2013, hosted by local artist/chef (and Ratto’s window dresser and all around helper) Lexa Walsh.  This month Ratto’s lends its historic charm to this international Sunday Soup Series.

Here’s how it works: You pay $10 to enjoy a fantastic home cooked meal.  Up to 10 artists will pitch their projects while you dine. At the end of the meal you vote, the ballots are cast and counted—winner takes all!  Dinners and Winners will be posted on the Oakland Stock site and artists return the following month to present on their progress. Why? Because you have the power to decide what cultural work is important, and here’s a chance to share a meal, discuss artists’ projects, and elect or be a winner of the dinner’s proceeds.

When: Sunday, February 10, 6pm-9pm

Where: Here at Ratto’s Market & Deli

Menu: Soup, of course! Salad & bread will accompany the meal.

Chef + Host: Lexa Walsh

Who’s Invited: Soup lovers, artists and those interested in supporting them.

PLEASE RSVP by emailing oaklandstock@gmail.com

Support for Oakland Stock is provided by Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure Grant Program.
