Umami and the NY Food Museum
join forces!
Are you a New York organization looking for
popular exhibitions
for your public space?
In 2008, Umami Food and Arts Festival launched a week of exploration of the connection between food and art, featuring food, art, and art about food. Events push the experience and concept of food to the limits, opening doors for performance, literature, visual arts, music and food transportations. It was a blast, and for 2010, NY Food Museum will partner with Umami to create another sensational week of events. Check here for further announcements!
Talk to us about hosting 100 Years of Joyva!
The NY Food Museum celebrates a century of Brooklyn’s own halvah and candy manufacturer, still family-owned and run after four generations. See giant pillows of sesame honey crunch, perfect oh’s of chocolate coated jellies, and the magical ways of tahini! Tell us your candy stories.
