This year’s Southern Foodways Symposium marked the beginning of a new art initiative in partnership with a multi-year grant from 21c Museum Hotels. We were delighted to welcome our inaugural artist Shea Hembrey and his mixed media installation, The Secret Ingredient. The work was on display throughout the month of October at the Powerhouse in Oxford, MS.

In this short documentary Hembrey talks about finding his voice as an artist, embracing his rural Arkansas background, and the inspiration behind the installation.
