Delve: Food + Art
Food and art have become quite good friend lately. From Instagram to still life, food has turned into a work of art in itself. Tonight, foodies and artists will discuss how food relates to us socio-economically, agriculturally, as well as culturally. Come for the panel, stay for the reception. Featured panelists include Emilie Baltz, Stefani, Bardin, James Collier, and Michael J. Cirino. Event begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, free for members.
