Emerging Fields

Mario Ybarra, Jr.‘s Creative Capital project Curry Corndog Stand premieres along with work by Sam Van Aken, Fallen Fruit, Futurefarmers, Robert Karimi, Sergio De La Torre & Matthew Moore at Around the Table: Food, Creativity, Community at the San Jose Museum of Art.

You are what you eat. This exhibition—the catalyst for an accompanying festival of activities presented by thirty partnering organizations—celebrates and explores the role that food plays in our lives. The agricultural bounty of our region has brought waves of immigration (Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Mexican, Vietnamese) and shaped a rich history of cultural diversity, which today we share in part via food. From food trucks to molecular gastronomy, food helps define the Bay Area’s communities.
