Advance Tickets for Brooklyn's MOFAD Lab Are On Sale Now
MOFAD-Dedicated.jpg Flavor: Making It and Faking It is the debut exhibition of MOFAD Lab, the highly anticipated exhibit design studio of the Museum of Food and Drink.

Opening October 28 in Williamsburg, the exhibit is a tasting and smelling adventure that will provoke the senses, reveal a critically important part of the food industry, and raise questions about what "natural" and "artificial" really mean.

Space is highly limited for Flavor: Making It and Faking It, so a small number of tickets are available for advance purchase. Pick them up today, or become a MOFAD member and receive exclusive benefits. Your tax-deductible support as a member also helps sustain the Museum of Food and Drink as it works toward opening a large-scale museum that shows how exciting it is to learn and care about food.

Dear Friends:
 It was with great sadness that I received the news of the passing of the author, professor, intellectual, and activist Dr Robert Curvin this afternoon. He was a lifelong resident of Newark and had a long history in the civil rights movement and the struggle for social justice. He was a humanitarian who was especially committed to the uplift of black people, the poor, and the dispossessed. He was a supporter of the People's Organization For Progress. He was my good friend. He will be sorely missed by myself and many others in this community. Power To The People!

 Sincerely, Lawrence Hamm Chairman People's Organization For Progress

5:00 - 9:00 PM

HOMENAJE ("Homage"): Jorge Soto Sánchez, the first major exhibition of the late Nuyorican artist and Taller Boricua member since his passing in 1987. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 7th, from 5:00-9:00pm, in conjunction with the Bronx Trolley: First Wednesday Arts & Culture Tour, at the Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos on the campus of Hostos Community College, 450 Grand Concourse at 149th Street in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. Admission is free and all are welcome. The exhibition, curated by Gladys Peña-Acosta, will be on view through December 2nd.

The exhibit will feature two versions of Soto's best-known work, El velorio de Oller en Nueva York, after the iconic work of the Puerto Rican impressionist Francisco Oller (1833-1917). Other major works of the exhibition include Todo bien en America (1960s) and El Señor Gobernador (1977). Peña-Acosta stated that the exhibition was made possible by the good will of many private collectors. Two primary contributors to the exhibition are members of his family and El Museo del Barrio, both having graciously provided important pieces that have not been on public view since his untimely death.

Exhibition on view Oct 7 - Dec 2, 2015
