“Food In 20th Century Art” by Carolyn Tillie
Tillie will delve into the history of food as an artist’s medium. She will discuss how food was not only the inspiration for the artwork of the Surrealists, Cubists, and Modernist art movements, but also how food became part of the medium in which they worked and expressed themselves.
