Now you can stand up and eat for our coastal waters. Mississippi’s culinary community, seafood industry, and the Walter Anderson Museum of Art are teaming up and serving up awareness to current threats on our coastal ecosystems through their ‘Gulf to Plate’ dinner.
The community supper features delicious seafood from award winning Mississippi-native chefs and environmentalists who will share their stories and insights on the effects of the Bonnet Carre Spillway opening on our marine life.
Mattie Codling with Walter Anderson Museum of Art says it is all an effort to help people better understand and enjoy their environment. “We’re really hoping people come to this experience and of course get to see the art of Walter Anderson, but also come away with a greater understanding of how we’re all connected, both culturally, economy-wise, and in the environment. And it’s really a benefit for our nature-based environmental programs where we’re trying to get people to get out into their environment actually experience the beauty of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”
The dinner will take place in the Walter Anderson Museum of Art in Ocean Springs on Monday, August 5th at 6 p.m.
