About Off the Menu:
For centuries, artists have used food as a subject—from Dutch still lifes teeming with meats, fruits, and vegetables—to Andy Warhol’s infamous soup cans. This exhibition features work from the Museum’s permanent collection, as well as art borrowed from galleries and studios in Lexington and beyond, to reveal how food can be used to investigate notions of nourishment, ritual, desire, and popular culture.
