William Anastasi & Dove Bradshaw Host Lunch

This past Saturday, Victory Club hosted a tour and private luncheon in the studio of the artists William Anastasi & Dove Bradsaw. Anastasi was a contemporary and close friend of John Cage and his work has been exhibited in the Met, MoMA, the Guggenheim, and many others. Dove Bradshaw is a conceptual artist who uses the natural elements (like weather) across artistic media. Anastasi and Bradshow were gracious enough to talk about their own works to Victory Club members and friends.

In the center of the table was Bradshaw's very own take on Marcel Duchamp's Bottle Rack. Eleni's brilliantly captured the work on their famous cookies, creating a dialogue between the culinary and visual arts.

The menu took inspiration from Anastasi and Bradshaw's own work.
