Food Party at the Art Institute

Ever since the whole "let's give veggies to Cookie Monster" debacle, puppets and food have been subject to intense scrutiny. Now Thu Tran, a 2005 Cleveland Institute of Art grad, has redefined the relationship. Her show, Food Party, features puppets that help her create culinary art in a cardboard kitchen — and they get the job done in less than 15 minutes. Food Party simmered to a start in Cleveland and boiled over to New York — it now can be seen Tuesday nights on the Independent Film Channel. It was named a favorite by L.A. Times' Robert Lloyd, and tonight, Tran will show clips from the show and answer questions about her process at "A Food Party Party with Thu Tran," hosted by the Cinematheque. Bring your food questions and your long-buried love of puppets to the Cleveland Institute of Art's Aitken Auditorium at 11141 East Blvd. in University Circle tonight at 7. Tickets are $10 ($7 for Cinematheque members) and can be purchased at the door from 2:45-3:45 p.m. or after 6 p.m. There's free parking in the CIA lot. — Rebecca McKinsey
