March 25; 5 p.m. reception and exhibition viewing, 6 p.m. discussion. A fascinating conversation about the architecture of dining with award-winning culinary historian Jessica Harris, internationally-renowned designer Thomas Jayne, Winterthur-trained educator David Dangremond, and Richard Koopman Curator of American Decorative Arts Brandy S. Culp. Learn about the customs across cultures that have shaped and defined the dining room as a gathering place and how current trending of the Great Room, a place for living and dining, both repeats and challenges the past. Known for room designs that reflect his admiration for history, Thomas Jayne explores connections and evolutions in the architecture of dining then and now. Jessica Harris, author of twelve cookbooks and a member of the Smithsonian's Kitchen Cabinet, bring a vast knowledge of foodways to the table. Together the panelists discuss how the culture of food and desire for comfort and conviviality gave shape to the dining room over time. Co-sponsored by The Design and Decorative Arts Council at the Wadsworth. Free. Enter at 29 Atheneum Square North.
