Set to open November 22 in Sheridan, at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library, the Wyoming Humanities Council is sponsoring Key Ingredients: America by Food, a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit that explores the cultural and historical forces that shape American regional cuisine and the connections between Americans and the foods they produce, prepare, preserve, and serve. The exhibit, a component of the Museum on Main Street program, is touring eight Wyoming communities.
