Conversations at OZ
Conversations at OZ is a unique fundraising event for OZ Arts, the 501(c)(3) contemporary arts center in Nashville. Each year, this event features 30+ Nashville community leaders hosting tables and conversations of various topics on which they are experts.
For this year’s Conversations at OZ event, OZ Arts engaged two distinctly different artists, Brandon Donahue and Brian Somerville, and asked them what they might create together. The result inspired not only the design for the event, but also the artists themselves to stretch beyond the boundaries of their regular practice in search of something new.
Guests mingled with distinguished conversationalists at a cocktail reception before discussing stimulating, diverse, and entertaining topics over dinner prepared by Levon Wallace, executive chef at Gray & Dudley in the 21c Museum Hotel.
