Highlights from the Collection
a glimpse into mofad’s curatorial process
In 2013, MOFAD’s first exhibition featured a 1930s-era breakfast cereal puffing gun. Since then we have acquired hundreds of food- and drink- related artifacts. Here, we present a behind-the-scenes look at some of our favorite objects in the growing MOFAD collection.
When considering a new addition to our collection, we assess the object’s importance with regard to each of the following aspects of the MOFAD mission:
History and culture
Science and technology
Production and commerce
Policy and ethics
Each item on display could be part of a larger exhibition in the future full-scale Museum of Food and Drink or used for research.
What food and drink objects would you add to the museum’s collection?
