Shows open in April at Pratt

Two shows open with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. April 4 at the Pratt Museum. The annual Jubilee student showcase opens on the lower level, with art in all media by students from kindergarten through high school.
“Key Ingredients: America By Food” opens in the main gallery. “Key Ingredients” is the Smithsonian Institution’s traveling exhibition about how food and culture inform each other across America.

Through a selection of artifacts, photographs, and illustrations, “Key Ingredients” examines the evolution of the American kitchen and how food industries have responded to the technological innovations that have enabled Americans to choose an ever-wider variety of frozen, prepared and fresh foods. “Key Ingredients” also looks beyond the home to restaurants, diners and celebrations that help build a sense of community through food. The exhibition addresses farming, table manners, history, markets and kitchen gadgets in a lively presentation creating conversations and inspiring community recollection and celebration.
