For centuries, what we eat has been a muse for artists, both as subject and medium. Today, we find ourselves inundated with an abundance of food photos across social media. What’s our obsession? “Chew, Food as Muse” is a playful examination of the role food plays in contemporary culture. Eleven artists explore and comment on identity, culture, community, environment, and politics through food as muse.

Opening Reception FRI, November 1, 6-8pm
