The 2019 Pop-Up Restaurant Series at Rockford Art Museum continues on Wednesday, April 24, 7–9:30 p.m., with Chef Shendet Ismajlaj of GreenFire. Tickets are $75 each; limited seating for each event, reservations are required. Proceeds support Rockford Art Museum. Tickets for the April 24 Pop-Up are on sale now at rockfordartmuseum.org


This is the second year for the popular series that highlights top area chefs inside the museum’s galleries; the 2018 series earned a nod for Rockford from the Chicago Tribune on its Bicentennial Bucket List last year. Each Pop-Up Restaurant showcases an innovative multiple-course menu alongside the current feature exhibition at Rockford Art Museum, as well as a lively “Did You Know” conversation about art and food with RAM Curator Carrie Johnson. 

Partnering chefs for the entire series are CHEF PAUL SLETTEN (February 27), CHEFS BRIAN JASON & ASHLEY GARZA (March 27), CHEF SHENDET ISMAJLAJ (April 24), and CHEF GAGAN SURI (May 22). Sponsors for the series include the Ahlstrand Family Foundation, Anne and David Boccignone, Ameriprise Financial/David Boccignone, Raymond James, Title Underwriters, and Sold on Toni.

Tickets are $75 each; limited seating for each event, reservations are required. Proceeds support Rockford Art Museum. Tickets for the April 24 Pop-Up are on sale now at rockfordartmuseum.org. Tickets for the May 22 Pop-Up are also available at
