How can food be a source for creativity? How can food be a means of forming a personal and collective identity as well as cross-cultural and cross-generational connections? Combining art and objects from the Museums’ permanent collection with interactive installations, this exhibition will create a place for shared connections over a subject that is as popular on Instagram as it is in family celebrations and religious histories. An assortment of artworks depicting food and gatherings, as well as cultural artifacts related to food consumption and ceremonies will be presented along with displays that feature recipes, reflections, and reminiscences about food provided by local community and campus community members and museum visitors.

Organized by the University of Richmond Museums, the exhibition was curated by students enrolled in the 2020 Museum Studies Seminar and N. Elizabeth Schlatter, Deputy Director and Curator of Exhibitions, University Museums, and on the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History.
