“Edibles & Potables” is F&D’s weekly Sunday slot to consider eats, eateries, and the occasional “larger” issue located on the periphery of our customary coverage content.
Actually the Carnegie Center for Art and History isn’t far away at all. The museum is located at 201 E. Spring Street in New Albany, across Bank Street from Monnik New Albany and a few steps away from La Catrina Mexican Kitchen.
A museum featuring contemporary art and history exhibitions, housed in a stunning historic Carnegie library building. Located in downtown New Albany near wonderful dining and shopping options.
“Ate x 10: A Group Exhibition About Food” debuts on Thursday, August 4, and will run until October 15th.
