This week on The Food Seen Michael sits down with sculptor, photographer and artist Corin Hewitt. Hewitt has had his art featured in the Whitney and in various galleries all over the world, and incorporates everything from heat casting to eating in his work. Hear Hewitt talk about the "kitchen/laboratory/art space" where he works, why still life has informed his work so heavily, and how he has used food as the product, medium, and end product in a lot of his art. This episode was sponsored by Tekserve.

On this episode of The Food Seen, listen to Michael “cook art history”, as Maite Gomez-Rejón of ArtBites.net, takes THE FOOD SEEN on a tour through The MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art), to discuss America’s first “foodie”, Thomas Jefferson. During his time as minister to France, he learned to love French cuisine, brought it’s customs back to the US, introducing many staple ingredients, as well as bringing American crops back to Europe. After our time in the museum, we headed back to the kitchen to recreate “A Jeffersonian Feast”! This episode was sponsored by Tekserve & The Lower East Side Ecology Center's "E-Waste Events".
