Food and Art on KMAC Radio

This week’s KMAC Radio hour on ARTxFM is hosted by Dane Waters, the Director of Education at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, and Eileen Yanoviak, the KMAC and Hite Art Institute Curatorial Research Fellow. The topic this week is the intersection of food, art, and music, looking at the rich history of art and music inspired by our fascination with food. Tune in to ARTxFM on Mondays from 11:00-noon EDT to catch the KMAC Radio hour. Each week, the KMAC blog will feature artworks discussed during the show.

The focus on food for this week is inspired by the KMAC’s annual Bourbon Bash happening October 5 at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage. The theme for Bourbon Bash is “The Art of the Chef and the Craft of Cooking.” Join the KMAC Radio hour to discover how artists and musicians have been motivated by food for millennia.
