Bethany Jurewicz's dream of combining her two passions, art and food, kicked off with The Apartment Project on Thursday, July 21. Jurewicz recruited a half dozen local artists to fill her old apartment at 707 E. Johnson St. (set to be torn down) with installation art, from cut paper sculptures to swings in closets, wall murals and video projections.

On this canvas, Underground Food Collective chefs served a series of small dishes inspired by the artwork, like a beet salad that looked like a painting and sweet corn with caramelized squash butter, Meyer lemon aioli and fresh dill. 

For the first event, Goose Island sponsored the beer, including a barrel aged Bourbon County Coffee Stout, the Belgian-style Matilda, and a bier de miel called Bee Squad. Beverages will be available for purchase at the next two events. 

Two more pop-up dinners are set for this Thursday and Aug. 4, with seven seatings between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets cost $40 each. Visit the-apartment-project.com for tickets and more information.
