Smithsonian American Art Museum
Bring your appetite for art and food history and dig into Breakfast Tacos with two Smithsonian experts. This rich photograph by artist Chuck Ramirez magnifies the remnants of a hearty meal to reveal the personal and cultural significance of the foods we eat. Join Claudia Zapata, curatorial assistant for Latinx art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Steve Velasquez, curator for the division of cultural and community life at the National Museum of American History, for this engaging virtual program.  
This program is part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Double Take series. Widen your perspective on American art as Smithsonian specialists from different disciplines team up to talk about artworks from SAAM’s collection. This popular series features experts from an array of fields—from anthropology and geology to aeronautics and history—and shows how art can connect to just about anything.
