Take a deep dive into the Gibbes permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. These tours are open to the public and will be led by curators, artists, or community members who will share their unique insights and experiences. On this tour, join food stylist Jenni Ridall Lata and Director of Education and Programs Becca Hiester on a delicious tour of the permanent collection. They'll be considering how trends in food photography change, how creative decisions about food styling make us feel, and even consider the difference between art and craft.
