Wayne Thiebaud. Salad, Sandwiches and Dessert, 1960.
If in Chicago, make plans to visit the Art Institute of Chicago for "Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine," and interesting-sounding exhibit:
This exhibition brings together over 100 paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts from the 18th through the 20th century, along with a selection of period cookbooks, menus, trade cards, and posters, to explore the art and culture of food and examine the many meanings and interpretations of eating in America.
Not sure that any one exhibit could actually capture the "many meanings and interpretations and eating in America.but I'm sure it's a lot of fun to explore. Then take an opportunity to eat one of the many great places to eat in the Chicago area. Through January 27th.
