February Evening Program

Cosponsored by the Caxton Club and the Chicago Art Deco Society

A central aspect of the culture and lifestyle of the 1920s and ’30s was the creation and consumption of food. You could exist in an Art Deco world where everything from the soup to the nuts was inflected with this style. As a pervasive style, Deco shaped a total environment and food and drink were an integral part of this. The lavishly illustrated lecture will feature many aspects of these manifestations.

Dr. Teri J. Edelstein, curator and museum consultant, is principal of Teri J. Edelstein Associates, Museum Strategies. She served as Deputy Director of The Art Institute of Chicago and previously as director of The David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art and the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum. She has taught at several universities. Her numerous publications include many articles and exhibition catalogues as well as the books Perspectives on Berthe Morisot and Art for All: British Posters for Transport. She contributed a major essay to Art Deco Chicago: Designing Modern America. Most recently, she curated Everyone’s Art Gallery: Posters of the London Underground for The Art Institute of Chicago.
