The delicious topic of butter will be the theme during Margaret Carney’s presentation “Butter Extravaganza.” Is there ever too much butter in our lives, recipes, and artwork? Of course there isn’t, so stories about butter, a celebration of butter, butter sculpture, butter dishes and related butter paraphernalia used in dining, and the International Museum of Dinnerware Design’s pop-up exhibition, Butter, will all be “on the table” for everyone’s enjoyment. Margaret Carney is the founder and director of the International Museum of Dinnerware Design, located in Ann Arbor.
