News & Events INFINITI partners with MOFAD
INFINITI partners with Brooklyn’s Museum of Food & Drink in a celebration of good taste
Sponsored by INFINITI, and in programmatic partnership with Vox Media and Eater NY, the Museum of Food and Drink’s “MOFAD Lab” will open to the public on October 28, 2015, with Flavor: Making It and Faking It, a multi-sensory exhibition that will show how the flavor industry separated flavor from food and came to dominate what we eat. In Flavor, visitors will go on an adventure through the physiology, science, history, and culture behind flavor—tasting and smelling the entire way.
“INFINITI has always been inspired by the human spirit and our desire to improve upon the status quo,” said Allyson Witherspoon, director of Marketing Communications and Media, INFINITI USA. “Through this exciting partnership with MOFAD and Eater, we’re supporting a truly one-of-a-kind museum and reaching a unique and curious consumer audience in those who visit the MOFAD Lab space in Brooklyn and elsewhere through a variety of compelling online content."
As a founding partner of the MOFAD Lab, INFINITI has developed it’s own original MOFAD exhibit at the 62 Bayard Street location. Entitled “Driven by the Senses”, the exhibit invites visitors into the comfort of an INFINITI Q50S before taking them on a virtual ride through four different cities, their most exceptional restaurants, and an exclusive look at how they prepare their signature dishes.
“This is a defining moment for the Museum of Food and Drink,” said Peter J. Kim, Executive Director of the Museum of Food and Drink. “…We are honored to partner with INFINITI and Eater to realize MOFAD Lab.”
