It’s true, broke people aren’t exactly leading the pack in charitable work. Sure you can volunteer, but when it comes to giving back, our pockets are often empty. So when an event comes around that combines art, music, film, booze, and supports a good cause, you can count me in. The Last Supper is a non-profit benefit for artists and the Food Bank of NYC.
This smorgasbord of entertainment will feature 50 short films, edible artworks (think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wallpaper), bands, DJ’s, farm collectives and as the name suggests, one big meal at the end. As the season shifts from summer to fall, the Last Supper deals with human’s cyclical nature of consumption and promotes the idea of a self-made culture. What better place to show-off Brooklyn’s best and brightest in the creative field than 3rd Ward. Explore this indoor/outdoor salon and get a taste of every type of artistic medium available. Admission is only $10 if you show up with 3 cans of non-perishable food. And who doesn’t have a few stray cans of Jolly Green Giant lying around? Think of it as the most fun, do-goodery event of the year.
