  • On Wednesday, May 25, 2022 The Smithsonian American Art Museum presented a virtual look into art and food history examining Chuck Ramirez's "Breakfast Tacos." This rich photograph magnifies the remnants of a hearty meal to reveal the personal and cultural significance of the foods we eat. Claudia Zapata, curatorial assistant for Latinx art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, joined Steve Velasquez, curator for the division of cultural and community life at the National Museum of American History for this engaging virtual program.
