Federal Foodies: From Farm to Table in Early Baltimore opens this week at Homewood Museum (February 3-April 29, 2012). The exhibit explores issues from farming and gardening practices to how foods were preserved, prepared and presented in the nineteenth-century, and showcases cookbooks, implements, and images, among other artefacts from the period. The show is curated by students from the Museums and Society course Introduction to Material Culture, taught every Fall by Catherine Arthur, Director of Homewood Museum. Come see what they discovered, including evidence of an early type of community supported agriculture, right here in Baltimore!

Take a break and go check out an Ever Green Evening! Thursday (Dec 8) 6-8pm. Inspired by book collections in Baltimore, JHU students from the Fall 2011 course the Artist in the Museum have made artists' books that explore everything from illuminated manuscripts to zombies. They look great! Congratulations to the artists.
