The Philadelphia Museum of Art and STARR Events will introduce special culinary offerings and dining experiences in honor of the Van Gogh Up Close exhibition on display now through May 6.

Granite Hill presents diners with a Van Gogh Chef’s Table reflecting the various regions explored by the passionate artist throughout his life, from the Netherlands, Paris and Arles to Saint-Remy and Auvers.

Highlighted offerings include Roasted Lamb Loin, Truffle Tremor, Beet Cured Gravlax, French Lentils and Black Berry Jam. The artist-inspired Chef’s Table is available Tuesday-Sunday for $24.

Friday, March 30 marks the 159th birthday of Vincent van Gogh. To pay proper tribute to the artist, Granite Hill will offer a special birthday cake to honor the man that has forever changed the painting world.

In addition, the museum is offering special Van Gogh Up Close catering menus which pay tribute to some of the painter’s most famed works of art. Think “Garden in Auvers” Pickled Greenmarket Vegetables, “Blossoming Branches” Frisée Salad and the iconic “Sunflower” Tart.
