The second annual Green Dining Week returns on October 17-23 featuring 17 Green Dining Alliance establishments.  Each day of the week will feature at least one GDA participant in which a portion of the total day’s sales will be donated to the Green Dining Alliance, a sustainability certification program for the St. Louis area. The Green Dining Alliance is an earthday365 program which aims to make businesses in the food industry more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The certification program focuses on 7 core areas: Recycling & Waste Reduction, Sourcing & Procurement, Energy Efficiency, Water Conservation, Chemicals, Awareness & Education, and Innovation. The GDA works with each restaurant through an extensive annual audit and reporting process to achieve their sustainable goals. It also celebrates each GDA restaurant’s achievements to help the public find and support local, green dining!

Choosing sustainability within the food industry is more difficult in a challenging economic climate. GDA Members work tirelessly to implement sustainable practices like recycling, composting, and food waste management and often take on financial burdens to use environmentally friendly to-go packaging and locally sourced food products. They constantly make energy-efficient upgrades like implementing LED lighting and scheduling regular refrigeration and kitchen equipment maintenance. GDA members are also social sustainable leaders in our communities and we should do our part to support them and our circular economies. Below is the list of GDA Members participating in the 2nd Annual Green Dining Week: 

Monday (10.17): Buzz's Hawaiian Grill (Tower Grove East), Bailey's Rooster (Downtown and South Grand) 

Tuesday (10.18): Salt + Smoke (Delmar and Hampton)

Wednesday (10.19): Perennial Artisan Ales, Kitchen House Coffee, Mission Taco Joint (Delmar Loop, Soulard, and St. Charles)

Thursday (10.20): Bailey's Range (Downtown), SqWires, and The Pat Connolly Tavern

Friday (10.21): Pizza Head

Saturday (10.22): The Wolf Café and Flavor 360 

Sunday (10.23): Crushed Red (Kirkwood and Clayton)

BUNNY BURSON: Connected

Bruno David is pleased to present "Connected", an exhibition of mixed media work by Bunny Burson. This is the artist’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Bunny Burson’s recent body of artwork is part of a decades-long exploration of her family history. Her fascination with scientific breakthroughs, in particular the mapping of the human genome, led her to add digital fabrication to her artwork. Burson said “I wanted to link my DNA to my ancestors’ and this sequencing led to new imagery, processes, and knowledge.”

“On our family’s bookshelves were my father’s century old German schoolbooks, brought from Berlin in 1938. It was the typeface, the paper and the German titles which sparked my interest. To re-discover and alter these books was meaningful, as reading was an important part of growing up in our family. The fragile, faded book pages in German became the perfect platform for high-tech 3D chromosomes connecting me to previous generations.”

ADRIAN GONZALEZ: Lonchando in the Grass

Bruno David is pleased to present "Lonchando in the Grass", an exhibition by Florida-based artist Adrian Gonzalez. This will be his first solo exhibition with the gallery. Adrian Gonzalez speaks and uses the hybrid language of Spanglish — a language spoken commonly in the United States — to reflect cultural interaction that underlies our contemporary moment. He uses the exchange between Spanish and English through playful yet provocative bilingual phrases, expressions, and unstructured ideas of language that are meant to communicate new thinking and describe his work. He associates the combative, improvisatory creation of words with artistic methods in his studio practice to make collage and assemblage paintings, sculptures, and prints from a variety of drawn, printed, painted, sculpted, and found elements.

CHARLES BURSON: America Dystopia America

Bruno David is pleased to present "America Dystopia America", a video work by Colorado-based artist Charles Burson. This is artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Using appropriated contemporary images, (from newspapers, television, twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and other online sources) tumbled, fragmentized, and granulated, Charles Burson seeks to evoke the threat of America becoming that fictionalized society portrayed in grand dystopian films and novels. Burson says “The foundation for such societies is dysfunctional government, teeming, violent and desperately poor masses and an overclass of wealthy, privileged, uncaring overlords. The events, divisions, and societal conditions of America’s Trump era, Covid and until now, the Biden era, evoke the conditions of such a dystopian society. At the core of this is a collapsing national consensus in and of America, the disappearance of which promotes conflict, stagnation, deep cultural divisions and a chasm of wealth and inequality.”

Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and cable are reshaping us and our world into one in which there are multiple truths and alternative realities. They are fostered and reinforced by the personal information silos into which we are herded and shaped by our media platforms and their algorithms. The screens into which we obsessively view are depersonalizing our interactions and corrupting our capacity to empathize. They are destroying our ability to hold and share a national consensus on what America is and should be. Opinion writer Ezra Klein articulates this phenomenon, in his recent New York Times interview with the author, Richard Powers.
