Gallery Project Presents Food for Thought

Gallery Project presents Food for Thought, a multimedia exhibit in which over 27 local, regional, and national artists explore the complex and varied relationships people in American culture have with food.  Eating is one of life’s universal activities.  At its most basic level, food is essential to all life; without it, we would perish.  But food is more complex than that.  How food is defined, produced, processed and delivered is hightly intertwined with basic cultural values around money, power, politics, even religion.  Food defines our past, our present, and our future.  The opening reception is Friday, Nov. 4 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
