Join us for a delectable and artful celebration as we launch the much-anticipated community cookbook for the Taste of Art Program! This cookbook is the result of a unique partnership between our local businesses and selected works within LUAG’s collection of nearly 20,000 objects. Attendees will receive a copy of the cookbook and participate in an evening that promises to be a feast for the senses, combining culinary and artistic worlds in a unique and delightful way. Program partner and culinary art historian Maite Gomez-Rejón will join us for a discussion of art, community and connection in the spirit of the “sobremesa.” "Sobremesa" is a Spanish term that doesn't have an exact equivalent in English, but refers to the leisurely time spent around the table after a meal, engaging in relaxed conversation, savoring drinks, and enjoying the company of family and friends.
Coffee and dessert will be provided.
Taste of Art weaves culture and history together by pairing cuisine and recipes from the local SouthSide Bethlehem community with works of art from LUAG’s permanent collection. Through interactive lectures, DIY- at-home tastings, storytelling, and discussion, individuals of all ages and backgrounds will experience the intersection of art, cultural heritage, and cuisine. Interactive lectures and cooking demos are offered in partnership with Maite Gomez-Rejon of ArtBites: Cooking Art History.
