Pulled Pork and Paintings
WMSE's Food Slam offered dozens of restaurants serving tasty food at the Grohmann Museum.
The opportunity to eat a pulled pork sandwich within inches of a 400 year old painting is rare. But MSOE’s radio station and its art gallery partnered to make this a reality at WMSE’s Food Slam fundraiser at the Grohmann Museum on October 5. The museum’s three floors, with its “Man at Work” art collection, made an unusual setting for the bite-sized meals offered by dozens of local restaurants. Sampling specialties from tamales to tiramisu, guests wandered the galleries and crowded the auction table to the eclectic beats of a live WMSE set. With some works dating back to the 14th century, the museum’s collection includes hundreds of paintings and sculptures that portray the evolution of men- and women- from agriculture to industrial work. Milwaukee, the machine shop of the world, became- for one night at least- the pantry.
