Mather House Sous Chef Alex Drumm serves his Pork and Beef Thai Meatballs with a Mint Slaw as part of Thursday’s Community Dinner. HUDS partnered with the Harvard Art Museums to have house chefs design a themed entrée corresponding with the current special exhibition: Corita Kent and the Language of Pop. The event drew its inspiration from Kent’s 1960s-era pop art prints, now on exhibit in the Harvard Art Museums.
The HUDS chefs' meatball creations are connected with a print by Corita Kent titled "song about the greatness," a pop art piece based on a Del Monte tomato sauce slogan: “makes meatballs sing.” Kent's works, which frequently allude to pop culture advertising, will be featured at the upcoming student celebration, The Harvard Art Museums Go POP!, on October 29.
