The Kitchen Commons, built in 2011, was a collaboration between J. Morgan Puett + Ian Montgomery.

Situated on the busiest & most public floor of the museum, it was conceived as a functional installation, emphasizing openness & hospitality for Elsewheres many participants. The Kitchen Commons is also considered a studio space for food-based experiments and education programs. Daily it is used by residents, interns and staff to prepare meals and accessed on occasion by Greensboro community members and museum visitors.

The Food Co-op keeps our kitchen fully stocked with locally sourced ingredients, spices, tools and equipment. Residency/internship costs are kept low through collective cooking, eating, cleaning & buying in bulk. Food items will be available for you to cook on the days we do not have meals. For safety, cleanliness and cost reasons all ingredients purchased through the Food Co-op are vegetarian, but the kitchen itself is NOT. Individuals are responsible for purchasing their own meat/fish or specialty items not provided to prepare.

Residents, interns, and staff eat lunch as a group and participate in post-meal cleans Tuesday-Saturdays. For information on monthly, public, meals please visit goelsewhere.org/dinner.
