In conjunction with the 2015 UConn Reads program, The Benton presents an exhibition inspired by this year’s chosen book — Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals. Artworks portraying sinfully sweet, secutive foods are juxtaposed with book excerpts that discuss corn syrup and its impact on our modern diet and food system.
