University of Arkansas students join 'Arsaga’s at The Depot' for kiln to table culinary experience
University of Arkansas students from the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences Department of Art are collaborating with a local restaurant and chef to present Artisans at the Depot: A Kiln to Table Experience on Dec. 11.
 
The event will feature ceramics, tableware, apparel and other visual art from University of Arkansas students alongside culinary art from Chef Patrick Lane at Arsaga’s at The Depot, in Fayetteville.
 
“Our ceramics and graphic design students have been collaborating all semester to produce this creative culinary experience,” Art Department Chair Jeannie Hulen, an associate professor of ceramics and the event’s organizer, said. “Students are working on the tableware, takeaway packaging, ticket and menu design, way-finding and many other experiential features. They are putting their hearts and souls into making this an evening to remember.”
 
University of Arkansas ceramics students have spent the semester creating tableware for the dinner, which will be keepsakes for participants in the evening. Graphic design students have created additional materials for the event, some of which will be on sale at the event, alongside other items from students in the Art Department.
 
“They have been working on the event’s logo and branding, menus, apparel, environmental graphics and more,” Assistant Professor of Graphic Design Marty Maxwell Lane, who helped organize the event, said. “We wanted the students and diners to see firsthand how experiential design can aid in creating the conditions for a top-notch dining event."
