If we are what we eat, then this exhibition-featuring more than 100 paintings, sculptures and decorative arts depicting an array of edibles, lavish meals, the remnants of meals and factory-produced foods-tells us a lot about what we are. Organized by the Art Institute and exploring the presence of food in artwork from the 18th through 20th centuries, "Art and Appetite" speaks to America's evolving but ever-important food culture and the historical art of eating.
