In addition to our ongoing program series, the Ackland offers a number of special programs for adults and children.
Soup to Nuts is an American English idiom meaning "from beginning to end." The phrase comes from the description of a full course dinner, in which courses progress from a soup to a dessert of nuts.
It is the "from beginning to end" part that makes Soup to Nuts dinners so unique. These dinners are intimate casual affairs with artists serving as the main course. Of course we don't eat the artist! Rather, we eat soup and devour the featured artist's creative process as they describe inspiration, passions, grunt work, and, ultimately, final results.
