The Arts

On this Sunday after Thanksgiving, explore with food historian, Laura Ziman artworks from a range of time periods and cultures that speak to feasts. Begin in Mesoamerica with terra-cotta items used by royals and religious leaders in ceremonial feasting. Look closely at African carved wooden platters on which roasted meats were piled and shared and ornate European silver made to impress aristocracy. Throughout the tour, share memories and experiences of your own feasts.
