Edible Art History: A Taste of the 1970s

December 9, 2016 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Jared Goodman ice cream interpretation
In an earlier edition of Edible Art History, Jared Goodman interpreted the painting City Perspectives (1932) by Raymond Jonson with a sundae composed of Passion Fruit Ice Cream, Salty Brownie, Olive Oil, Raspberry Shrub.

Culinary artist Jared Goodman of Morgan St Theater Dessert Club continues his collaboration with the Portland Art Museum for a one-of-a-kind Edible Art History pop-up inspired by three noted works from the early 1970s in the Museum’s Modern & Contemporary art collection: a composition of fluid color and shape by Helen Frankenthaler, a torn and scratched canvas by Joe Goode, and a light sculpture by Dan Flavin. Goodman will pair these artworks with adventuresome ice cream sundaes that will speak to their aesthetics, history, and social context. He will be joined by Sara Krajewski, the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art; and special guest Corey Pressman, a local educator and UX designer. Join us for a unique and intimate “dessert for dinner” museum experience filled with storytelling, art history, bold flavors, and lively conversation.
