Ramen Love: New Art in the Library

Make sure to stop by the library’s gallery space between October 4 – November 1 to see the delightful (and delicious) looking art that celebrates all things ramen!

Ramen Love is brought to you by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program

  • Artist: Sarah Gonzales
  • Where: CUE Library Gallery
  • When: October 4 – November 1, 2017

“In the exhibition Ramen Love, artist Sarah Gonzales celebrates the global food sensation ramen noodles. Sparked by her love of ramen, she explores the roots of this noodle and its mid-twentieth-century journey from Asia to North America. Her quirky sensibility balanced with skillful drawing creates a body of colourful works on the history of noodle making, the introduction of “cup-a-soup” to North America in the 1950s, and most importantly the various types of noodles and broth.” – The Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program, Media Release.
