Join us for a conversation about the fascinating relationship between food and design. This panel will feature an exclusive group of design and food-world influencers who will explore the relationship between the culinary and the cultural. The panelists will explore the ways in which food continues to penetrate so many arenas, especially art and design, and what these incursions say about culture. The conversation will also examine what’s new and innovative at the intersection of food and design.

Pratt strives to make all programs, services and activities accessible, and will provide assistance to accommodate any individuals with disabilities. Security personnel, located at booths at 200 Willoughby Avenue and other campus locations, are available for assistance. Additional accessibility resources are available at
