Making a Meal is a participatory installation that transforms Hopkins Hall Gallery into a place of gathering. To encourage thoughtful eating, visitors are invited to share a meal with the artists by first removing their food from its original packaging and placing the food on a range of vessels including styrofoam, plastic, paper, and ceramic. The installation asks visitors to consider where their food comes from, what they eat from, what affects food choices, and what happens to food waste. The project is presented in conjunction with a Sustainability Lecture Series Wednesday, July 9th from 11-12:30 and includes speakers from Red Roots Community Garden, Slow Food Columbus, and Trish Clark from The Crest Gastropub. Participants in the project include Todd Arnold, Maribeth Brown, Matthew Young, Seth Lepley, and Natalia Arbelaez. We will eat lunch together during the week of July 8th-11th from 12:30-1:30. The public is invited to join us at 12:30 each day to share a meal together in Hopkins Hall Gallery. Patrons bring their own lunch and the artist will provide a series of vessels to eat from during the week.
