Good Taste: Playing with Food
Thursday, August 20, 6:30-8:30 pm
Jones Center
Robert Therrien's subtly humorous work evokes both the real and the imagined, as he coaxes humble motifs into surreal configurations through scale, abstraction, perspective, and color. Inspired by Therrien's art, local chefs create bites that play with food's scale and its link to childhood memories. .
