As of February 27, 2017, the museum is permanently closed to the public. The university is digitizing the museum’s holdings for research and can be viewed on our Collections page.
Photography, in all its various forms, is a portal into the past and a vision for the future. People, places and events come to life and teach us about our social interactions with food. The photo of a neighborhood store might lead one to question mega supermarkets. Likewise a photo of a farmer’s produce stand would remind us that eating local is not a new fad.
