Dining Out

A chef has much to consider, and now more than ever, the origin of the food is just as interesting as the quality of the ingredients. Local heirloom tomatoes and neighborhood goat cheeses flourish in our best and favorite restaurants.  Now, they are also being served on handmade pottery, with wood ash glazes or custom designs that take the visual value of the meal even further beyond the basics, and creates a celebration of both the food and presentation.

FRANK gallery presents the dinnerware and serving pieces designed by seven famed regional potters, created for great chefs throughout the Southeast, and used for dining in innovative restaurants across the region.  These executive chefs often go to the studio to understand how the pottery is designed, and specifically how those pieces can best showcase the art of fine dining.

Play is Universal

A photographic exhibit featuring the work of local artist Barbara Tyroler, illuminates Kidzu Children’s Museum’s work in creating a “structure of belonging” and making great play experiences accessible to all.
