Luncheon at Kostabi World

This past Saturday, internationally renowned artist and composer Mark Kostabi hosted Victory Club members & guests for a luncheon at Kostabi World, Mark Kostabi's studio and home. Known for his paintings of faceless figures, Kostabi has work in the permanent collections of the MoMA, Metropolitan, and Guggenheim Museums.

The tablescape included Bodvar of Sweden Rosé, red tulips in a Kostabi vase, and a Kostabi sculpture. Chefanie loves to put art (and wine) in the center of the table to create conversation.

In the 1990s, Kostabi's work began to be widely exhibited throughout Italy, and shortly thereafter, he established a second home in Rome. The lunch menu took inspiration from Kostabi's time in Rome -- and his vegetarian diet. We thank Whole Foods for generously donating the ingredients that made the meal so delicious!
