Edible Art History: A Taste of American Art (SOLD OUT)
Culinary artist Jared Goodman of Morgan St Theater Dessert Club collaborates with the Portland Art Museum for a one-of-a-kind Edible Art History pop-up inspired by three noted paintings in the Museum’s American art collection: an iconic portrait of George Washington by Rembrandt Peale, a rural landscape of eastern Oregon by Childe Hassam, and a cityscape by Raymond Jonson. 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 Prudence Roberts, former Curator of American Art at the Museum and now Instructor of Art History at Portland Community College. Join us for a unique and intimate “dessert for dinner” museum experience filled with storytelling, art history, bold flavors, and lively conversation.

Buttermilk ice cream, corn biscuit, boozy plums and molasses
Fresh sage ice cream, blueberry sky, nocino clouds and biscotti sand
Cherry-wood smoked milk chocolate ice cream, challah and rum bread pudding, passionfruit, and li hing mui
