The Southern Food and Beverage Museum keeps some exhibit space open to rotate new exhibits about Southern foods and drinks. These exhibits usually stay up for 1 to 3 months. Please also take a look at our Past Exhibits page, and check our Permanent Exhibit page to see what is always on display in the museum, and our Online Exhibits to explore virtually.

Coming Soon: 200 Years of Taste
The Foodways Subcommittee of the Bicentennial Commission has developed a traveling exhibit of informational banners on the history and culture of our love of food. Content will show “heritage” ingredients and dishes as they are related to the geography, environment and historical timeline of the state. We’ll celebrate the unique foods of the state and show just how important culinary history is!
The Da Vino Code
On Display through December
LeonARTo da VINO has always been a devotee of fine food and wines and a pretty good storyteller. But he never was an artist . . . until, at the age fifty, he started to draw and paint. The Da Vino Code began to emerge from his imagination in 2002. It was followed by The Queen of Cuisine, completed in 2011. The two are a labor of love that spanned a decade. LeonARTo da VINO (Chuck Gray) is a self-taught artist with a southern sense of humor and a bent for the unusual.
