Zily Bites served a sampling menu attendees at the San Antonio McNay Art Museum Pop América exhibit. In case you don’t know, the McNay was the first museum of modern art in Texas.  The event was part of the ArtFULL Wednesday: Food for Thought series created to showcase art and talent from all over the world.

Bringing Zily Bites onsite to cater this event was an ideal match as the ” Pop América features nearly 100 artworks that connect Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, and the U.S., sparking a fundamental reconsideration and expansion of Pop.”

The tasting also included chicken croquettes (coxinhas) pão de queijo (cheese bread made with yucca flour) and chocolate truffles called brigadeiros. Guest delighted in our various crave-ables while learning about the work of two Brazilian artists–Rubens Gerchman and Antônio Henrique Amaral–featured in the current exhibition Pop América, 1965–1975.

More information about this event: It is a collaboration with the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, the McNay featuring Latino/a and Latin American Pop artists working at the same time as their counterparts in the United States and Europe, the exhibition makes a relevant contribution to a more complete understanding of this artistic period.
