About the Dinner:
Saturday, March 14th was a unique dinner lecture experience. Our special guest was author and playwright Kevin Killian. He “set the stage” for artist Rachel Kaye’s work, offering his insights into Kaye’s depictions of modern day celebrity, royalty, and glamour. The event took place at a renovated Mission District firehouse, the home of Svetlana and Daniel Lucas. Dinner was prepared by local chef Leif Hedendal, it was delicious, fresh, local and organic…just how we like it.
