A unique culinary collaboration, The Art of Food pairs contemporary Louisiana artist Jacqueline Bishop, with award-winning Chef Phillip Lopez of New Orleans' Restaurant Root, to explore what art and food can reveal about the Louisiana landscape, climate change, and the world around us.
Two Artists, One Goal:
• With his cuisine, Chef Phillip Lopez explores ways to use food to evoke memory, emotion, and sense of place.
• Using landscape to address landscape issues, artist Jacqueline Bishop creates symbolically rich images that express her concerns as natural habitats yield to human pressure.
The Art of Food challenges Chef Lopez to interpret Bishop's work in the medium he knows best -- one to which we can all relate: Food.
