It is said that we are what we eat and if that is the case, then there is no better place to find out who you are at a Chicago art exhibit this weekend.

“Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture and Cuisine” at the Art Institute of Chicago (111 S. Michigan St., Chicago IL) features more than 100 paintings, sculptures, and art that depicts various foods, edibles, lavish meals and the remnants of meals and factory produced foods. This is in an effort to educate visitors about where we are and where we come from.

Organize by the Institute itself, the exhibit runs until January 25 and explores the presence of food in artwork from the 18th to 20th centuries.
