For the next several months, I will be working on several 8 ft tall hand-carved panels which will be installed in HaiSous. A partnership between husband-and-wife duo, Thai Dang and Danielle Dang, HaiSous is an authentic Vietnamese kitchen scheduled to open this Fall 2016 in Chicago. Please visit their website and follow them on Facebook, Instagram @haisouschicago , and Twitter @haisous for updates on the opening and information about pop-up dinners this summer!
If you are a restaurant or small business (in Chicago or otherwise!), I would love to work with you! I am currently seeking to collaborate on hand-printed food and cocktail menus, art pairings with multi-course dinners, installations, and any other way you wish to incorporate art into your business. Please contact me at RaeleenKao@gmail.com
