Food is art and art can be food! This week on The Morning After, hear from Yael Raviv, who’s behind the Umami Festival. Umami*: Food and Art Festival is a non-profit, biennale event created in 2008. The festival features events that are interdisciplinary and collaborative, creating an interchange of ideas and stirring debate about the role of food and art in our society, creating long-term collaborative relationships between organizations and individuals from different fields. Umami encourages art based in everyday life and materials, illustrating that art can be found anywhere and can be produced at any time with the simplest means. Also on the show – Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson who are promoting an upcoming dinner at City Grit! This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
“The idea of food and art intersecting is becoming more common. It wasn’t always like that.” [23:00]
