DESCRIPTION

The Potato Revolution continues with an international exhibition of contemporary Potato Art at the Islip Art Museum. "Occupying Potato" brings together a wide range of works by artists deriving inspiration from different aspects of the Potato. This exhibit explores the potato as the most nutritional and abundant vegetable in the world; looks at its storied history and wide-ranging scientific uses and its spiritual aspects as well as its enduring comedic potential, and the prevalence of the potato in popular culture – a very unique exhibition.
