Art Kitchen/Science Studio: Today's Special

Session 1

In Art Kitchen/Science Studio, Teaching Artists use works of art from the Museum's collection as a starting point to explore the shared materials, methods, and myths associated with art, food, and science. Hands-on demonstration, experimentation, taste testing, and art making provide the perfect recipe for learning.

Today's Special is a chefs' culinary creativity with a basic recipe similar to a jazz musician improvising from a musical score? The phrase "special of the day" implies a one-time offering, dependent on ingredients at hand. The Chris Kallmyer: Ensemble exhibition centers around an interactive sculptural instrument designed to be activated by collaborating non-musicians and also includes a daily musical score developed by the artist for visitors to interpret. Join the Museum's summer Artist in Residence renowned jazz musician Ted Nash and SBMA Senior Teaching Artist Tina Villadolid in the galleries for an interactive performance, followed by an art activity and a tastings of three different exhibition inspired takes on single seasonal ingredient prepared by Renato Moiso of Via Maestra 42.
