Contributing artist Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz poses in traditional clothing with the Puerto Rican food she made for her family

Associate professor of studio art Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz was featured in a story from The Washington Post about “Reclamation: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals”, an online exhibition by the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The exhibition “examines food as a creative medium for visual art and a connective tool for exploring intergenerational and intercultural experiences.”

Raimundi-Ortiz is one of nine artists featured in the exhibition; as part of her submission, she made pollo guisado, a Puerto Rican chicken dish, and vegetarian pastelillos to share with her family.

“Food becomes this thread that binds us all, the idea that we have a place to live, to call home, to build a nest with our loved ones,” she said.
