What is Gastrotypographicalassemblage? It is literally a 35 foot-long, 3D typographic mural that spells out food related words.
From 1966 to 1989, Gastrotypographicalassemblage was on display in the staff dining room at CBS Network headquarters in the legendary Black Rock building in Manhattan. But, for the last 25 years one of the world's largest modern typographic artworks has been hidden away in a basement on Long Island. Thanks to a long-standing member of the Board of Trustees at The Culinary Institute of America it has a second life now. It is now on display for the first time in a quarter of a century at the CIA. "Gastrotypographicalassemblage" is a focal point of The Culinary Institute of America's new Marriott Pavilion and Conference Center in Hyde Park, NY.
