Women Chefs: Artists in the Kitchen

Sat–Sun, Sept 5–Nov 8, 2015

Curated by Harriet Lesser

It’s a tasting menu for the eyes when 21 visual artists blend their talents with 22 women chefs—and the results will amuse more than your bouche! The artists create portraits, the chefs offer cooking demos, and the true creative artistry of the kitchen gets served on a silver platter.

Please join us for the following programs, presented in conjunction with the exhibit:
