Food Justice: Growing a Healthy Community Through Art
November 12, 2022 - April 23, 2023
Stone and Barstow Galleries
Food security is among the most basic of human needs, but contemporary issues prevent equitable access to food. Economic inequality and structural racism, corporate agricultural practices, food waste, climate change, and domestic and geopolitics are among the many factors that contribute to disparity in food resources around the globe. Food Justice: Growing a Healthier Community through Art will critically explore complex human issues that can shape and influence positive change in food security. Art’s transformative potential will enable viewers to experience and understand food insecurity in meaningful ways and be inspired towards change. Food Justice is a traveling exhibition from Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA.
This exhibition is partially funded by The Hamilton Company Charitable Trust.
