Movable Feast

September 23 - October 12, 2010
Moveable Feast

This collaborative project between the University Museum of Contemporary Art, Nuestras Raices Inc. of Holyoke, Holyoke Food and Fitness Policy Council and Joseph Krupczynski (art activist, architect/designer and Umass professor) transforms a traditional mobile food cart into a visual and culinary feast, circulating to locations throughout our community. It is a vehicle (both literally and metaphorically) that advocates for building a healthier local food system.

Meals and discussions about healthy community-based food practices are transformed into "artworks" through the framework of this public art project. The truck will be owned by Nuestras Raices, a grass-roots organization that promotes economic, human and community development through projects relating to food, agriculture, and the environment. Movable Feast is inspired by the idea that art can expand conventional notions of people, place and the art-making process. Movable Feast coincides with the University Museum of Contemporary Art's participation in the Museums10 fall festival "Table for Ten". Throughout the fall Movable Feast will circulate from the Umass campus to rotating locations in Springfield, Holyoke, and other towns in Western MA. All dates and locations, listed on this website and on the project's website at, are subject to change.
