Modern Meals: Remaking American Foods From Farm To Kitchen—

Join us for the exhibition opening of Modern Meals: Remaking American Foods from Farm to Kitchen. Drawing on The Wolfsonian’s collection, and presented in The Wolfsonian Teaching Gallery at the Frost Art Museum, the exhibition explores how technology and design remade the places where food was produced, sold, cooked and eaten from the turn of the century into the post-1945 period in the United States. Modern Meals is the fourth exhibition presented by The Wolfsonian with The Frost Art Museum’s collaboration and is supported with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The opening will take place during The Frost Art Museum’s Target Wednesday After Hours celebration. Free. For more information: 305.348.2890 or artinfo@fiu.edu.
