Study Room Open House: Roots of Global Food Production

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 10:00am to 4:00pm
Yale Center for British Art YCBA, Study Room
1080 Chapel Street
06510 New Haven , CT

Join us for a special display of drawings, prints, watercolors, and rare books will be on view in the YCBA Study Room in celebration of Yale’s Sustainability Week!
This focused display considers the roots of global food production and consumption. Britain’s imperial history intertwines with the trade in foods that are now widely consumed all over the globe, such as sugar, rice, mangoes, and tea. Artistic representations of these foodstuffs depict the beauty that made them alluring, and suggest the sometimes devasting human and environmental impacts caused by their production.
