Community Feast 2019

August 30, 2019 5:30pm – 7:30pm

Community Feast

The longstanding Kenyon Orientation Week tradition continues with the 2019 Community Feast, where we share a farm-to-fork picnic along our symbolic Middle Path, an axis linking college and community. Local foods harvested from surrounding farms and fields—sweet corn, tomatoes, zucchini—connect the Knox County agricultural community, new and returning students from around the world, faculty and others in conversation and discovery. A concurrent opening reception for Hue, Saturation, Value: The Archer Paintings, Probably Chelsea, Mia Halton ‘73: For Girls Becoming Women; everyday encounters, and Selections from the Gund Gallery Collection at the Gund Gallery will feature FREE Kona Shaved Ice for the first 400 visitors.

Please join us for yard games, old-time Appalachian music with the band JMJ Crescent, and bring your picnic blankets. Donations of non-perishable food items (canned and boxed goods) will be accepted for local charities during Feast!

Friday, August 30, 5:30-7:30 PM
Located along Middle Path. Rain site is Pierce Hall

For more information, contact the Gund Gallery at 740-427-5972.

Feast is sponsored by the Office of the President, The Gund Gallery, Philander Chase Conservancy, and the Kenyon Farm—with special help from AVI!

Gund Gallery exhibitions and public programs are supported, in part, by the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and the Ohio Arts Council.
