Food for Thought | Exploring Your World Through Three Cultural Moments

at Frist Art Museum, Nashville TN

Dec 13 2016
Food for Thought | Exploring Your World Through Three Cultural Moments

In partnership with Vanderbilt University’s Office of Community, Neighborhood, and Government Relations, the Frist Center presents “Food for Thought: Exploring Your World through Three Cultural Moments,” a three-part series of lunchtime conversations presented by Vanderbilt professors, Frist Center curators, and other members of the Nashville community. This is the final lecture in the series.

This fall, the Frist Center has presented three very different exhibitions that shed light on the values and aesthetics of their respective cultural moments. From turn-of-the-century American craft and social justice to elite Japanese warrior society, to a contemporary meditation on music, time, and place, the exhibitions Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise (open through November 6), Samurai: The Way of the Warrior (open through January 16), and Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors (open through February 12) have offered many lenses through which to see your world in a new way. Visit for more about these programs.
