The Portrait Project - A Collection of KYU Faces in Weird PlacesSunday, December 2, 11am-7pm – KYU Restaurant, 415 NW 26 Street, Miami Wynwood Arts District

You are invited to a Gallery Exhibition: PORTRAIT PROJECT – A Collection of KYU Faces in Weird Places, featuring 37 photos taken of KYU staff. This special event celebrates a collection of photographs, captured by Anastasiya Yurkevich with help from her team members, over late-night creative sessions inside and around KYU restaurant over the past year. Each photo aims to capture the essence of KYU team members in a unique, playful and truly individual style. This event celebrates the many personalities found within the Hospitality Industry. Often referred to as the waiting room, restaurants are often unexpectedly filled with larger than life personalities and KYU is no exception. 

Portrait Project will be used to raise funds for the Cameron G. Scholderer Scholarship Endowment. charity, with donation based drink tickets. The KYU family and Hospitality community experienced a sudden loss on November 30, 2016 with the passing of their talented bar manager, Cameron G. Scholderer. The endowment will provide scholarships for students following in Cameron’s footsteps and pursuing a career in beverage management at the Chaplin School. Recipients of the scholarship will carry on the legacy of Cameron’s commitment to mentor-ship by becoming mentors themselves to each new recipient of the award, passing along Cameron’s story of hard work and determination. We will be hosting a silent auction and taking donations in an effort to reach our goal of $5000 for the endowment. Drink tokens will be given with donations.
