    Food, Glorious Food

    Studio 659, a visual arts center in Whiting, IN, a suburb of Chicago, is seeking artwork submissions and project proposals that in some way address food and/or eating. We eat for a variety of reasons: pleasure, hunger, comfort, social ritual. A photograph of a baby eating a lemon, a painting of a family enjoying a feast, a sculpture of a fruit bowl…artists are encouraged to creatively interpret the theme and submit for consideration any work they think might be of interest.
