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.
