Open Date:

Sat, Nov 16, 2019

Close Date:

Sun, Nov 28, 2021


This new exhibit will explore food choices and eating habits in the United States, including the sometimes hidden, but always important, ways in which our tables are shaped by cultural, historical, political, and technological influences. One dinner served in 1910 will form the centerpiece— literally—of Resetting the Table. The historical and cultural roots of the foods on the menu, and the privileged context of their presentation, will be explored. Selections from ten University collections will reveal the long history of many iconic American foods, spanning multiple cultures and thousands of years.
