An exhibition of artists’ installations and documentation reflecting the trend between food and art.

Jerome Waag (chef of Chez Panisse and artist) and Chris Sollars (award-winning San Francisco artist and teacher) will feature the documentation and relics of Melt the Pot, a participatory dinner party. International artist Jim Denevan will expose the connections between his 14-year project Outstanding in the Field and his personal journey as an artist who draws on the earth. E.G. Crichton, UCSC professor of art, uses a range of strategies to explore social issues and presents a feminist dinner party. Chelsea Wills brings her experience between Mexico and the United States into a monochromatic dinner specifically created for this exhibition. Leif Hedendal will connect the community through one of his Dinner Discussions in Santa Cruz. 

The Sesnon Gallery will present an overview of the international movement around food and art coming together and forming a greater sense of community.

The opening reception 5:00-7:00pm at the Sesnon Art Gallery at UCSC's Porter College.

Public gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 12:00-5:00pm with extended hours on Wednesdays until 8:00pm.
