Last year we worked together on a project called “Crushed Grapes and Open Minds”. We had this idea of finding wine that would pair with some of RuBen’s beautiful art. RuBen with Act2Art ever the overachiever, decided he would paint a piece for each wine we chose. We chose 5 wines and he painted a piece to pair with each. The idea connected scent memory and art, both in the creation of the pieces and peoples reactions to them.
