Opening Celebration of “France is a Feast: the Photographic Journey of Paul & Julia Child”

“Bon Appétit!” Join us for the Opening Celebration of our World Premiere Exhibit – France is a Feast: The Photographic Journey of Paul and Julia Child on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 5 to 8 pm.

This exhibit, inspired by the new book by Alex Prud’homme and Katie Pratt, showcases rarely seen black and white photographs taken by Paul Child in France between 1948 and 1954. Featuring Paul’s extraordinary photographs of Paris, Marseille and the French countryside after the Second World War, the exhibit will also include rare objects and intimate pictures of Paul’s wife, Julia Child, long before she became a celebrity cookbook author and “The French Chef” on television.

Alex Prud-homme and Katie Pratt will speak at the opening, and be available to sign copies of their new book. The event is free for Museum members and $20 for Non-Members. We expect interest to exceed capacity for this event, so please reserve your tickets now at our RSVP/Tickets page, or at by clicking this link.
