Fallen Fruit’s EATLACMA & Photos from LACMA Public Fruit Jam (August 2010)

September 7, 2010

I guess better late than never!  Here are some of the photos from the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) public fruit jam!

LACMA public fruit jam organized by the Fallen Fruit artist collective

LACMA launched a new program called EATLACMA, which examines the relationship of food & people.  It hired the artist collective Fallen Fruit to spearhead this project.  This video introduces EATLACMA & its mission:

A few photos from the event:

The public fruit jam was free but I still had to get a ticket @ the box office.

Upon arrival, I found baskets full of various fruits

Picked the fruits for my jam, ready to cut 'em up to li'l pieces.

Peek-a-fruit! Hahaha. Jamming = jolly!

We could have cut the fruits into even smaller pieces, but we were the last people still cutting up at the event, so we stopped at this point.

Then, a volunteer helped us boil the fruits with some pectin ("fruit sugar") & water for about 15 minutes.

Finally, after the fruit jam gets cooked, we placed them in these jars! So yummy!

Our 5.5 jars of fruit jam had:

  • sweet lemons
  • apples
  • grapefruit
  • yellow peaches
  • oranges

My little cousins (8 & 10 year-olds) & I enjoyed this event so much!  THANKS to FALLEN FRUIT & LACMA!  Who knew an art museum would host such a fun food-related event?
