    1. A Thousand Plates Event (all-day)
      Mar 7 – Apr 12

      A Thousand Plates: An Art Exhibition about food

      A Thousand Plates explores the topic of food as a means to question society by examining traditions across cultures and throughout the centuries. The exhibition will examine food as a fundamental need, modern food production and its relationship to the environment, the culture of eating and its relationship to memory.

      Our exhibition title refers to Deleuze and Guattari’s “A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia”—a philosophical text written with a rhizomatic structure—where connections between ideas and references defy linear, structural, or casual relations. Every point can conceptually link to somewhere else. In our view, our relationship to food is similar. The production, consumption, distribution and marketing of food is connected to tradition, culture, individual and social taste as well as healthcare, environmental issues, and global politics that shape the contemporary society.

      The SDSU School of Art and Design will be presenting a juried art exhibition of student and faculty work investigating food as the conceptual theme for SDSU’s Downtown Gallery. Works will explore the topic of food as a means to explore society by examining traditions across cultures and centuries. The exhibition will examine food as a fundamental need, modern food production and its relationship to the environment, and the culture of eating and memory.

      Dates: February 19 -March 26, 2015
      Time:  11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
      Location:  SDSU Downtown Gallery
      Repeats:  Every week on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday

    2. California Small Farm Conference (all-day)
      Mar 7 – Mar 10

      From website:

      The California Small Farm Conference is the premier conference for small farmers throughout the state. The annual event attracts more than 400 attendees. Attendees will look to exhibitors for information on products and services pertinent to small farms. This is a great opportunity to reach new customers: family farmers, ranchers, farmers’ market managers, farm advisors and others.

      The goal of the California Small Farm Conference is to promote the success and viability of small and family owned farming operations and farmers’ markets through short courses, tours and workshops. Additionally, opportunities for advancement in production, business management and direct marketing are presented by speakers from the University of California, USDA agencies and successful operators in the field.

      A Thousand Plates: An Art Exhibition about food

      A Thousand Plates explores the topic of food as a means to question society by examining traditions across cultures and throughout the centuries. The exhibition will examine food as a fundamental need, modern food production and its relationship to the environment, the culture of eating and its relationship to memory.

      Our exhibition title refers to Deleuze and Guattari’s “A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia”—a philosophical text written with a rhizomatic structure—where connections between ideas and references defy linear, structural, or casual relations. Every point can conceptually link to somewhere else. In our view, our relationship to food is similar. The production, consumption, distribution and marketing of food is connected to tradition, culture, individual and social taste as well as healthcare, environmental issues, and global politics that shape the contemporary society.

      The SDSU School of Art and Design will be presenting a juried art exhibition of student and faculty work investigating food as the conceptual theme for SDSU’s Downtown Gallery.
