All Day The Caprichos: Etchings by Emily Lombardo (Multi-Day Event)

The Caprichos is a series of etchings that are in direct conversation with and pay homage to Francisco Goya’s “Los Caprichos” of 1799. Both reveal the dark underbelly of cultural movements that ultimately serve to divide society across economic, racial, political, religious, and gender lines. Lombardo, an artist who investigates personal and cultural identity in her work, brings these issues to light through a queer feminist lens.

Are you addicted to sugar? Do you find yourself craving a sweet treat in the late afternoon or after dinner? This workshop focuses on sugar in our modern diet, what forms it takes and where it hides in most of our foods. Is sugar the reason you’ve gained weight and can’t lose it? How much sugar are your kids eating? The discussion examines how sugar affects you, your weight, your energy and your moods. Is it addictive? Are artificial sweeteners a safe alternative? Learn which sweeteners to avoid and which ones to enjoy. This workshop encourages lively discussion and questions from participants!
