In Art Kitchen/Science Studio, teaching artists use works of art from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s collection as a starting point to explore the shared materials, methods and myths associated with art, food and science. Hands-on demonstration, experimentation, taste testing and art making provide the perfect recipe for learning at free sessions from 2 to 3 p.m. and 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. July 21 in the Luria Activities Center at the museum, 1130 State St.
Is a chef’s culinary creativity with a basic recipe similar to a jazz musician improvising from a musical score? The “Chris Kallmyer: Ensemble”exhibition centers around an interactive sculptural instrument designed to be activated by collaborating nonmusicians and also includes a daily musical score developed by the artist for visitors to interpret.
The museum’s summer artist in residence, renowned jazz musician Ted Nash, and SBMA senior teaching artist Tina Villadolid will present an interactive performance, followed by an art activity and tastings of three different exhibition-inspired takes on a single seasonal ingredient prepared by local chefs.
