David Boatwright mural at Mira Winery depicts local chefs

'Luncheon of the Boating Party,' Charleston style

Posted by Kinsey Gidick on Sun, Jun 8, 2014 at 5:58 PM

Back in April when I was working on a piece about David Boatwright for Charleston magazine, the artist told me Mira Winery had hired him to paint a huge mural on their Queen St. headquarters. The piece would be an homage to Renoir’s “Luncheon of the Boating Party” but recast with some of the city’s most recognizable food and beverage professionals. Well the image is nearly done and we spot many familiar faces — Mike Lata, Frank Lee, and Mickey Bakst. We thought Sean Brock would be in there, but it’s hard to say from the image Mira tweeted this afternoon.

Drive down Queen St. to get a look for yourself. Can you name all 14 people?
