20 photos from the Dunedin Fine Art Center that prove food and art are better together

This fall, the Dunedin Fine Art Center premiered six new art exhibits, five of which had a food theme (and check out Bontanamoeba). Their opening reception included artful hors d'oeuvres prepared by Chef Craig Tinling. It’s all to celebrate the upcoming opening of the Dunedin Fine Art Center's new Food Arts program, which will combine new cooking classes with the center’s traditional art offerings.
