Nelson-Atkins Shares ‘Notes on Creativity’

Kansas City foodies, we have the exhibit for you.

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is serving up “Ferran Adrià: Notes on Creativity,” a new exhibition that goes beyond the apron of world famous avant-garde Spanish chef Ferran Adrià, who employs visualization and drawing as inspiration for his innovative cookery to bring a new perspective on how we understand food. The exhibition emphasizes the role of drawing, language and symbol in the chef’s quest for new culinary experiences and runs Feb. 28 – Aug. 2.

Along with the exhibition, the next four weekends will feature a different Kansas City food curator offering tastings and reflections on their personal culinary creativity. Christopher Elbow of Christopher Elbow Artisan Chocolates will kick off the exhibition series by speaking about his signature chocolate and inspiration behind the confections Feb. 28 and March 1, 2 – 4 p.m. Also included in the series are Danny O’Neill of The Roasterie (March 7-8), Mark Friend of Farm to Market Bread Co. (March 14-15) and Sarah Hoffman of Green Dirt Farm (March 21-22).

Exhibition tickets are required to attend the series and start at $12 for adults. Get more information online here.
