Teacher Workshop: Food for Thought?

Thu, Apr 27, 4:30–7 pm

Conference Room & Galleries

What can food tell us about history, economics, literature, and language? This workshop delves into the intersection of food and art. Topics include the impact of agriculture on early civilizations, the consequences of the Columbian exchange, and contemporary culinary diplomacy. Activities incorporate analyses of food-related works of art that serve as primary sources for investigations of geography, social structures, trade relations—and more! Participants will also visit The Artist’s Palate, an interactive exhibition on view in VMFA’s Memorial Foundation for Children Teaching Gallery.
