Wednesday, October 19 | 2-4pm

Enjoy an a la carte conversation exploring the ways in which food and play have influenced identity. Your menu of speakers includes local restauranteurs, professors, and UMKC Roos who will provide food for thought through the lens of art and material culture in T/m’s unique collection of toys and fine-scale miniatures.

Enjoy a panel discussion in the Tureman Education Center at T/m. Then, speakers and guests will have the opportunity to engage in further casual/impromptu discussion about food in the galleries directly in front of the original museum objects.
