The second culinary event is a midnight post-concert sit-down supper on Saturday evening with members of Wilco and museum director Joe Thompson. The supper will take place in MASS MoCA's expansive Building 5 gallery under artist Xu Bing's breathtaking installation The Phoenix Project. During dinner, the director will talk about this extraordinary work of art and politics, never seen before outside China. Dinner is $275 per person (wine included) and benefits the MASS MoCA Free Library Pass Program, which makes possible free museum admission to the community through the North Adams Public Library system in Berkshire County. $200 of the cost is tax-deductible.
