Statement of Purpose
The Culinary Arts Museum is an educational resource for Johnson & Wales University, the community at-large, food scholars, and the food service industry. The Culinary Arts Museum seeks to both preserve and interpret the broad culinary and hospitality heritage addressed by the university. It is a showcase for the work of students, faculty, alumni, and distinguished visiting chefs. Through exhibitions and special events, the museum strives to interpret the evolution of food preparation and presentation, the development of culinary equipment and technology, the diverse menus offered, and the places where people partake of food.
