The art: Brian Ulrich, Kenosha, WI from the “Copia” series, 2003.
The news: “Before the Food Arrives on Your Plate, So Much Goes On Behind the Scenes” by Dwight Garner in the New York Times. Garner’s piece is a review of “The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee’s, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table,” by Tracie McMillan.
The source: Not If But When, Ulrich’s website. Late last year, Ulrich was my guest on The Modern Art Notes Podcast, during which we talked about his interest in American retail environments.
