The Autumn 2019 Exhibit at the Gallery at the Institute Library, curated by Martha Lewis -- An amazing assemblage (a mélange, if you will) of memories of food, of cooking, of kitchens, of how all of these things are part of our lives, no matter where we are from or what kind of food we eat. Artists drawing on life experiences from around the world have submitted works, kitchen objects, recipe cards, and stories that marry in this exhibit.
