Food does more than satisfy our appetites. It has a place in many themes, from politics, gender, and race to religion and class. Discover how food, culinary, arts, and agriculture are represented in artwork during a virtual discussion led by Lloyd DeWitt, PhD, Chief Curator and Irene Leache Curator of European Art; chef, food writer, and food educator Patrick Evans-Hylton; and Virginia MOCA Curator Heather Hakimzadeh.
Then see culinary works of art created at local restaurants, including Cafe Stella, Cobalt Grille, Commune, Press 626, Steinhilber's Restaurant, and Zoe's Steak & Seafood Restaurant.
The Zoom link will be sent with the confirmation email.
Learn more about food in art history in American Appetite: Selections from the Chrysler Museum of Art, on view at Virginia MOCA February 6–June 6, 2021. The exhibition will feature a range of works from the Chrysler collection, including painting, photography, and printmaking.
