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.

6:30pm ARTIST TALK: Colin Boyd
Boyd creates alternate worlds, taking on the roles of novice naturalist, eccentric engineer, and dreamer of the supernatural. His work results in sculptural installations, fabricated ephemera and artifacts, prints, and stop-motion films that together present a collection of odd narratives that are colored by fantastical interpretations of nature and human history.
