Join us on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at 6 p.m. for a lecture by Maite Gomez-Rejón exploring how nineteenth-century French café and food culture intersects with the iconic imagery of Impressionism. Gomez-Rejón has dedicated her career to exploring the nexus of art and culinary history through lectures, cooking classes, and tastings presented in museums and universities across the country and through videos on her website and YouTube channel, ArtBites: Cooking Art History. She earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Grande Diplôme from the French Culinary Institute, New York, and worked in museums across the country before founding ArtBites in 2007.
Following the lecture, sommelier Kevin Hart will give a brief overview of the art of wine tasting, and the audience will be invited to the Great Hall to enjoy a wine tasting experience hosted by Hart & Cru and tour the exhibition, One Each: Still Lifes by Cézanne, Pissarro and Friends.
Tickets include entry to the lecture, lite bites and wine tasting, and after-hours entry into the exhibition.
Tickets for general public – $45
Members – $30
Location: Fath Auditorium, please enter through the DeWitt entrance of the museum.
