History of this Event
Patricia Moss-Vreeland began staging public events as an extension of her artistic practice to foster community interactions on topics related to her long involvement in Art and the Science of memory “ I am excited to work with diverse professionals collaboratively in order to illuminate the many connections to memory, creativity and our senses.”
On a May 6th Cook- Eat Remember: Memory Potluck Community Table event at the Painted Bride Art Center, Patricia Moss-Vreeland partnered with the Monell Chemical Senses Center, in a program interlacing the art and science of smell, taste and memory.
“Patricia Moss-Vreeland’s Memory Potluck supper had the feeling of an intimate gathering of friends yet it was enlivened by diversity. There were new people to meet amidst familiar ones, and delicious foods to sample from a variety of traditions and ethnicities. Everyone seemed genuinely delighted to participate in this sharing of food and the personal stories the foods evoked.” Dolores F. Verdeur, May 2014
