FOOD: Transforming the American Table, 1950-2000

Capitol Hill
Now Until November 20, 2014
National Museum of American History
1400 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20560
  • PRINT

Featuring the Museum’s rich and varied collections of artifacts, documents, photographs, and films, the exhibition will place the story of food within the context of the American experience after World War II. FOOD will explore the major changes in food—its production, distribution, preparation, and consumption—in the United States. Touching on topics such as the dramatic rise of convenient, processed foods and on-the-go eating; the arrival and widespread adoption of cuisines from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East; the movements toward artisanal, organic and locally-grown foods; and the development of the American wine industry, the exhibition will offer visitors a stimulating and engaging experience.
