The Indiana Humanities Council has a terrific opportunity for anyone who likes to think, read, or talk about food. Your school, museum, library, community center, festival or organization can host our “Food for Thought” traveling exhibit in 2010 from 2 to 4 weeks.
This exhibit features a historical and contemporary look at Indiana’s food culture, plus interactive opportunities for Hoosiers of all ages. You can see, touch, taste and hear about food through artifacts, images, hands-on learning tools and an oral history booth. (See pictures and read about its travels, here)
The exhibit is part of a two-year Food for Thought program. It helps people examine and celebrate the unique ways food can define Indiana’s culture. It lets people consider food contexts of history, law, politics, science, the arts, ethnicity, and our place in the world – in short: the humanities. In 2010, the exhibit traveled to many cities in Indiana (see where). Due to the tremendous response from these communities, we have put together an application process to help determine the next places the exhibit will travel in 2011.
