About the Exhibition

"As George Bernard Shaw wryly observed, 'There is no love more sincere than love of food.' With YUMMM!, The American Visionary Art Museum raised a toast for its 21st birthday with a new visual feast featuring 34 visionary artists who joined forces with food scientists, farmers, nutritionists, environmental activists, psychologists, poets, and humorists to publicly explore humankind's complex, multi-layered, relationship with food and its impact on our personal health, the health of our planet, fellow humans, and animals." - Founder, Director, and Chief Curator, Rebecca Hoffberger
