Acquired Taste Art Show at Cal State Fullerton

I am super excited for this coming Saturday!  There is a pretty rad art show kicking off at Cal State Fullerton (class of 1999 baby!).  The show is called Acquired Taste:  Food and the Art of Consumption and is all about food, how we consume it, what we consume and how it consumes us.  The show is curated by Alyssa Cordova and Heather Richards of Sixpack Projects
But here is why I am SO excited about it.  This will be the first time I get to see any work by my idol Jennifer Rubell (art installations/social commentary using food, best selling cookbook author {seriously – this is one of my all time faves!}, hotelier…) in person.  I’m not going to get all stalky and gushy in this post, I’ll save that for later.  This post is about the upcoming show.  There are 13 different artists being featured and I can’t wait to attend and learn more about their work!!!
The show starts Saturday, October 29 and runs through December 8th.  The opening reception (Oct. 29) is open to the public and along with the what is sure to be thought provoking and hunger inducing art there will be a bunch of other interactive events.  A cooking demonstration by chef Jonathan Dye will feature recipes he created based on some of the work in the show.  There will also be a participatory mural art project, and a lecture by artist in residence Gregory Stewart.  As if that wasn’t enough, Delilah Snell of Backyard in Jar will be there in her vintage Volkswagen van, hopefully selling her ridiculously delicious preserves!  I’m such a fan of her products!
Don’t miss it!!!
