Around the Table: Call for Artists

The New York Botanical Garden is in search of local artists in the Bronx to participate in our major new Summer 2022 exhibition, Around the Table: Stories of the Foods We Love, running June 4–September 11. And whether you’re an artist yourself, have friends who are, or have the opportunity to boost the message via your organization, we welcome the support in sharing the word!

Around the Table will focus on the cultural, horticultural, scientific, and historical significance of food and edible plants. Food is at the center of life’s most important events and cultural practices. When we gather together for a meal, the dishes we share tell a story—and we share a bit of ourselves. From global dietary staples such as rice, beans, squash, and corn to the regional spice and flavor provided by peppers, greens, and more, plants are at the base of all food traditions. Around the Table will examine the social and cultural importance of plants and food to our identity and interactions through an indoor-outdoor display of plants, art, and scientific stories.
