A multi-media arts festival and feast showcasing local emerging artists, chefs, and musicians. All proceeds benefit the Food Bank of New York City.
The Last Supper is a two-week long affair, with a celebration, charity benefit, and arts exhibition that showcases local emerging art, film, music, new media, and culinary talents. Now in our sixth year, we’ve grown from a backyard party celebrating the end of Summer to an indoor-outdoor feast, concert, and exhibition at Brooklyn’s Third Ward with 800+ attendees. We are a community-based event, supporting local artists and local food producers.
Each year we choose a theme dealing with consumption for our artists, musicians, and chefs to pursue. This year’s theme is self-made, referencing how communities and individuals define, create, and provide identity for themselves—whether it be through DIY movements, online personas and avatars, community collaborations, or individuals relocating and starting new lives.
This year, we plan on expanding the scope of The Last Supper further, to include community events such as lectures and interactive workshops. Your donation will support these events, as well as our annual opening-night party, showcasing food, art, and music from emerging talents, which benefits the Food Bank of New York City.
Your donation helps us cover necessary set up fees for the festival and opening night event, including food, event space, and production costs (equipment rentals, hanging art).
