UA Students for Sustainability Showcase Desert Food Systems in Plating the Desert Exhibit

Posted By on Wed, Mar 2, 2016 at 2:15 PM

Okay, so you’re not going to fill up at this food-centric event, but UA’s Students for Sustainability have put together a series of unique pieces of art that focus conceptually on food in the desert and what it means to have a food system here.

The Plating the Desert exhibit, spearheaded by the Environmental Arts Committee’s Stephanie Choi, is a collaborative showing of 40 handmade ceramic plates that encourages its viewers to consider their connection to both food and art here in the Sonoran desert.


The plates will be on view from March 7 until March 25 at the Student Union Galleries (1303 E. University Blvd.) with an opening reception on Tuesday, March 8 from 6 until 8 p.m.
