Delve into the sweet history of chocolate from its roots in ancient Mesoamerica over 4,000 years ago all the way to the contemporary creations of today. Join Snite Museum curators and chocolatiers from Violet Sky on this rich, sometimes dark, but always delicious, journey for your eyes, mind, and taste buds.
Third Thursdays are free and open to all. Museum galleries and exhibitions are also open that evening.
