Food for Thought: Earth Month - March 2011
The Molloy College Art Gallery will exhibit still life masterpieces titled "Food For Thought" for Earth Month at Molloy College.  As part of the Molloy College Sustainability Institute events, the Molloy College Art Gallery will exhibit illustrations of the Masterworks throughout the history of art during the month of April.

Artists will include DaVinci, Caravaggio, Warhol, Renoir and many others. These large-scale copies will illustrate how food has changed throughout time.

These still life's allow us to see what the items represented far beyond the object themselves. For example, the still life's of the Dutch masters of the 17th century told the tale of wealth and the limits of idolatry during the Protestant Reformation. In the culture of the 1960s and 1970s Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claus Oldenburg, among others, have illustrated the issues of consumer society throughout their works.

The exhibition will include a lecture by Marna Chester, Pratt Institute, whose Master's thesis focuses on "Food Accessibility in Brooklyn: Sparking Grassroots Efforts" on Thursday, April 7 at 2:30 p.m., a reception will follow as well as a Q and A with Ms. Chester.  For additional information, contact Dr. Yolande Trincere and Cristina Artusa at the Art Gallery at artgallery@molloy.edu or call 516.323.3195
