BCM is temporarily closed  Jan. 15 - Feb. 5.

The museum will be temporarily closed to visitors from January 15 thru February 5 so that we can take down the winter exhibits, prepare for the next exciting activity and make some minor renovations to the building.

Six@Six: Unwrapping the Peanut Butter Cup

Wednesday, Jan. 24, 6 p.m.

Most of us are fortunate enough to take what we eat for granted, but we also take for granted the source of our food. Processed foods are a nice indulgence. But they have become a regular part of many diets to the cost not only of people’s health, but the welfare of producers and the sustainability of the planet. As key ingredients in the peanut butter cup, cocoa beans, peanuts, and palm oil are rooted in human rights and environmental abuses. Dr. Kimberly Weir will discuss the politics behind food choices by unwrapping this ubiquitous treat.

Six@Six is a community lecture series sponsored by Northern Kentucky University's Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. BCM is proud to be a partnering venue. Lecture takes place in the BCM Education Center. Tickets: $6. To purchase tickets or for more information CLICK HERE.
