Virtual Tour of the Traveling Exhibit!

Not quite the same as in person….but this will give you a good idea of our exhibit that’s traveling the state. Through a variety of interactive and informational displays, it features a historical and contemporary look at Indiana’s food culture. We address topics from early food in Indiana to food in Indiana today and tomorrow. Take a look!

Welcome Towers

Our welcome towers feature Indiana Farmers and their stories, in addition to information about the exhibit and Humanities Council programing.

Jar Wall

The Jar Wall is shaped in the state of Indiana and features regional foods, festivals and exports.

Information Towers

Much like the Welcome Towers, these two towers explain more about what’s on Indiana’s plate.

Hoosier Cabinet

The Hoosier Cabinet was a 19th Century Invention common in kitchens throughout the state. Ours features artifacts and inventions from the era, as well as a touchscreen quiz about Hoosier food!

Community Chalkboard

This magnetic chalkboard allows for communities to customize the exhibit to feature their own local organizations, information and community opportunities to be more involved.

Story Silo

The Story Silo is the legacy of our traveling exhibit. Hoosiers can record brief food stories, memories or thoughts that truly help us meet our goal of defining Hoosier food culture.

Are you involved with an organization who’d be a great host for our traveling exhibit? Please contact Kristin Hess, our Food for Thought Ambassador. We’re already working on our 2011 schedule and would love to hear from you!

    Looking forward to stopping by your display on Wednesday! I just wrote a “local food” story about the Union County (where I’m from) favorite, “Wimpy.” I’ll bring a copy. Where did you get your Hoosier Cabinet? I may take a photo of someone with it for our newspaper as I look for “Henry County connections” at the fair because they were made right here in New Castle.

  2. Donna,

    The cabinet came from the Southport Antique Mall in Southport, Indiana. The metal tag at the top of the cabinet says it was built in Frankfort, Indiana.
