Feeding Desire: Design and the Tools of the Table, 1500-2005 opens today at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum here in New York City. It's on view from May 5-October 29, 2006.
A journey through the evolution of Western dining from the Renaissance to the present, Feeding Desire features objects from Cooper-Hewitt's world-class collections. The exhibition will address the development of utensil forms, innovations in production and materials, etiquette, and flatware as social commentary.
I can't wait to go see it!
