Food is necessary for our survival, and it’s also a profitable industry, a source of pleasure and a key fixture of cultural traditions and celebrations. The universal nature of food makes it an ideal subject matter for artists to critically examine many themes, such as commerce, identity and the intersection of art and life. Snack features works by American Pop artists Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol and contemporary artists John Baeder, Charles Bell, Don Eddy, John Sokol, Ken Heyman, Ralph Steiner, Brandon Juhasz, Sandy Skoglund and Kristen Cliffel, to name a few.
