Professor Andrew Ellis Johnson and Professor Emerita Susanne Slavick exhibit in “What is for Supper? What is a Meal?,” a group exhibition at Northern Illinois University Art Museum November 14 through February 17 (with a closure from December 16 to January 16).
“What is for Supper? What is a Meal?” explores aspects of nurturing, socialization, health and sustainability. Geographic, cultural and economic differences may determine what is available to eat and what would be satisfying as a meal. The importance of food shared is a linchpin of hospitality and is an integral component for social dialogue to take place. Issues that threaten our food intake also threaten our greater well-being.
