Taste of Art

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.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, American Rescue Plan for Museums and Libraries.

Este proyecto ha sido posible en parte por el Instituto de Servicios de Museos y Bibliotecas, Plan de Rescate Americano para Museos y Bibliotecas.
