From the Collection

March 18—June 6, 2017

Tues., Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm

We've brought together some of the art in our collection along with an exhibition of cookbooks from the family, and some on loan.

Feeding the Family: 20th-Century Cookbooks

Through June 6th

Cookbooks tell a story about how families lived—the tools they used, what they ate, and what they cared about. From the activism-focused "charity cookbooks" of the progressive era to the penny-pinching recipes of the war years, this selection of beloved Orth family cookbooks offer a snapshot of changing technology, tastes, and women's roles (and for cooks, some tried-and-true recipes).
