The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College is now presenting the critically acclaimed exhibition “Like Sugar,” which explores the problematic and joyful aspects of sugar from multiple points of view to broaden our understanding of how the multi-layered substance affects us.

Tonight (Monday, March 4), in conjunction with the exhibition, the Tang’s Accelerator Series of talks on urgent issues is presenting “Food Futures—Food Justice, Sustainability, and Well-Being” with special guests Kate Daughdrill, an artist and urban farmer from Detroit; Anthony Hatch, a Wesleyan University professor whose book “Blood Sugar” critiques how scientists and drug companies use race and ethnicity; and Leah Penniman, a farmer, activist and author from Grafton, New York.

In the studio with us today to tell us all about the exhibition and tonight’s event are Ian Berry, the Dayton Director of the Tang Teaching Museum, and Rachel Seligman, the Malloy Curator and a co-organizer of the “Like Sugar” exhibition.
