Food for Thought: Understanding cultural identity and heritage through food
As part of their coursework in ART 315: Special Topics in Graphic Design, Illinois State University School of Art students created information design posters about one dish from their ancestral country and traced its history, ingredients and relevance. Students conducted research about national identity, pride, language and art.
Through conversations with their family, students discovered the significance of the food they had long taken for granted. Each poster expresses the artist’s unique cultural background. Food for Thought invites audiences to celebrate different heritages through diverse cuisine.
