"The exhibit will bring the story of food in the Adirondacks to the present day with an exploration of Farmer's Markets, organic agriculture, and the rising interest in locally grown produce and meats," said Dineen.
"Let's Eat! Adirondack Food Traditions" has been generously supported by the New York Council for the Humanities.
In addition, two popular special exhibits will return for a second year. "Common Threads: 150 Years of Adirondack Quilts and Comforters" includes historic quilts from the museum's textile collection as well as contemporary comforters, quilts, and pieced wall hangings. "A 'Wild, Unsettled Country': Early Reflections of the Adirondacks" highlights paintings, maps, prints, and photographs that illustrate the untamed Adirondack wilderness discovered by early travelers and explorers.
The museum will offer a full schedule of lectures, field trips, family activities, hands-on experiences, and special events to delight and engage visitors of all ages. "Let's Eat!" events include "Picnic in the Park" planned for July 10, "The Adirondacks Are Cookin' Out!" - a tribute to food prepared with smoke and fire - on July 29, and Harvest Festival, Oct. 2 & 3, 2010.
