A Sensory Feast at the Kearney Street Workshop Tomorrow

Jean Chen, Broccoli, digital print, 2010

Tomorrow (Friday, February 4, from 6 to 9 p.m.) the Kearny Street Workshop is opening  “A Sensory Feast,” an art exhibit “where you can experience food and art not just by eating and seeing, but also through your other senses of feeling, hearing, and smelling.”

The exhibit will run through Feb. 24, but there is some cool stuff that will only be at the opening:

  • Pop-up photo booth where you can pose in wearable food sculptures as a human durian, cheese, etc.
  • Temporary tattoos of some of your favorite foods
  • Special appearance by the Senor Sisig food truck
  • Cash-only bar with wine and beer

On Wednesday, Feb. 16, there’s also going to be a “Presentation of the National Bitter Melon Council,” which the group describes as a “public celebration of the health, social, culinary, and creative possibilities of this under-appreciated vegetable and emotional state of being.”
