A review of University of Arizona Museum of Art exhibition, "The Art of Food," in Forbes.

"However the prevalence of food as an artistic subject cannot be fully explained by the need of painters to demonstrate their artistic prowess or even the need of societies to engage in magical thinking. Many of the works included in the exhibition at the University of Arizona Museum of Art suggest other motivations, ranging from the sensual to the intellectual."
