Opens April 12th / Extended thru May 22nd

The Fridge is pleased to be an official sponsor of Sensorium — a 6 week Culinary and Sensory experience taking place inside a 36′ Geodesic Dome on the Capitol Riverfront.

Sensorium is a culinary and sensory experience featuring creative atmosphere and cutting-edge production. Enjoy a 12 course tasting extravaganza brought to you by Executive Chef Bryon Brown, amidst an evening of delights, mysteries, and surprises for all five senses!

Inspired by Artisa Kitchen, a nomadic Supper Club hosted at various art galleries in DC, Sensorium combines the culinary arts and visual/performing arts into a production that unfolds over a 12 course tasting menu complete with wine pairings.

Jeramie Bellmay (The Fridge Associate Curator), and David London (The Fridge Gallery Manager) are heading up the creative team behind the production.

The performers have been rehearsing at the Fridge for the last several weeks, as they prepare to launch the production on April 12th.

Tickets are $150 per person.  Each seating is limited to 30 people.

Tickets are currently available for the first three weeks of Sensorium, April 12 – May 1, 2011.  A limited number of discounted tickets are available for the first two nights.

As a special offer to Friends of The Fridge, you can save $25 off your ticket to Sensorium with Promo Code “FRIDGE”
