Reenact The Kiss by Klimt, Get Glimpse of Kunstkammer at Austria Pop Up, NY, October 5-19
If a visit to Vienna has been a dream of yours, Austria Pop Up Store in New York will give you a chance to get a taste of the dream from October 5 to October 19, 2011.
From an introduction to Viennese coffeehouse culture with a temporary outpost of Sacher Cafe to a chance to reenact The Kiss by Gustav Klimt and a glimpse at the Kuntskammer reopening at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien in 2012, the offerings are varied.
Food afficionados will be in for a treat at Austria Deli where you will be able to sample "products by Manner, inventor of the original Neapolitan waffer, with five layers of wafers filled with delicious hazelnut cream. You'll love the unusual chocolate varieties by Zotter, made exclusively with organic ingredients. Styrian Gold Pumpkin Seed Oil has recently conquered the tables of world-class restaurants and connoisseurs around the globe. The recipes for Christmas cookies from the Vienna Cookie Company have been passed down generations, just as several generations of the Goelles family have been cultivating orchards in Styria's sunny hill country, turning their harvest into award-winning artisanal vinegars."
The Austria Pop Up closes its doors on October 19 with Taste of Austria a culinary wine journey through Austria. It will feature chefs Kurt Gutenbrunner, Wolfgang Ban and Eduard Frauneder as well as Erwin Schrottner and Heidi Riegler. Tickets for this event are $75 but with the Code ATASTE you receive $15 off.
The Austria Pop Up home will be Openhouse Gallery on 201 Mulberry Street in NYC
