Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine opens tomorrow to members (and November 12 for everyone), but we've got the first look at what might be the first exhibition ever to combine Norman Rockwell, Andy Warhol, and a recipe for Oyster Fritters.
Art and Appetite explores American art and American cooking through the lens of paintings, sculptures, decanters, teapots, vintage menus and cookbooks, and more over multiple centuries. Take a closer look to learn more about the ritual of the family meal, the rise of the restaurant in what is now a fast food nation, and the history of locavores.

1 day 5 hours ago The Art Institute of Chicago NOW ON VIEW—Otis Kaye incorporated currency into a series of works as a commentary on the close relationship between art and commerce. Heart of the Matter shows a torn-up representation of Rembrandt’s Aristotle with a Bust of Homer with a stack of cash hanging from its center. The painting was purchased at the time for a record-breaking price. Kaye sought to critique the commercialism at the “heart” of the art world while paying tribute the great artists who make it possible.
See our new acquisition—Otis Kaye's Heart of the Matter—on view in Gallery 262.
