Friday night barbeques best encapsulate the essence of Mount Tremper Arts. In these hybrid evenings, artists share work with audience members in an intimate, informal setting. And then, everyone shares thoughts and a feast directly from the MTA garden! During these meals, all perspectives are welcomed as we find the lively intersections (and digressions) between rigorous contemporary art practices and many other walks of life.

These events include both the art programming and dinner prepared by Chef Richard Krause from ingredients grown from our vegetable garden as well as local grass-fed meats. Menu includes vegetarian options. Art programming is at 7:00 pm with dinner around 8:00 pm.


Friday, July 22 at 7pm- Mike Rugnetta and Patrick Davison (What We Know So Far) share an extremely fast-paced and fun multimedia performance in which they test (and reveal) the accidental experts at cognitive multitasking we have all become.

Friday, July 29 at 7pm- International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) performs works by Steve Reich as well as 21st century composers.

Friday, August 5 at 7pm- POETRY & PORK- readings by John Yau, Patricia Milder, and additional genre-defying writers from The Brooklyn Rail. Followed by New Zion Trio and a pig roast.

Friday, August 12 at 7pm- screening of Rock My Religion, Dan Graham's provocative thesis on the relation between religion and rock music in contemporary culture.
