Articulate Artist Talk: Before the Fork @ Baton Rouge Galler

In honor of the special exhibition, "Before the Fork," BRG’s ARTiculate Artist Talk series will offer a special panel discussion – moderated by author and Food Writer for 225 Magazine, Maggie Heyn Richardson – that will look at the farm-to-table trend and allow for discussion of how the exhibition’s featured artists created the works on display. 

Panelists include artist and LSU AgCenter Communications Director Frankie Gould, Slow Food Baton Rouge President Carl Mostenbocker, City Pork's Corporate Chef Ryan Andre, Owner of Fullness Farms Grant Guidroz, artist David Scott Smith and artist Ross Jahnke. ARTiculate begins at 4 p.m. and is also free and open to the public. 

Typically held on Sundays, this month’s ARTiculate Artist Talk has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 7 due to the Mother’s Day holiday. 

"Before the Fork" featuress four artists examining if where our food comes from can tell us something about where we are or where we’re going. The exhibition will touch on a variety of topics ranging from the breadth of Louisiana’s agricultural economy to modern food packaging, from the controversy surrounding the use of GMO crops to the transformation of natural land into profitable land.
