The International Museum of Dinnerware Design’s Fourth Biennial Invitational and Juried exhibition, Breakfast, is all about celebrating the first meal of the day.  In addition to work by contemporary artists, historic works from the IMoDD permanent collection are seamlessly woven throughout the exhibition.  Due to the pandemic, the exhibition opened virtually on April 10th, and did not open to the public until June 5th.  Follow the links on this page.

This exhibition is a partnership between the International Museum of Dinnerware Design, the Washtenaw County Historical Society’s Museum on Main Street and the Ann Arbor District Library.  

Juried prizes were sponsored by “Jiffy Mixes” of Chelsea Milling Company.


Will it still “snap crackle pop?”

For the opening reception, we presented a the once-in-a-lifetime virtual Breakfast “Happening.”  A “vintage” individual serving size box of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, dated 1963, with paper lining so that it can be used as a cereal bowl, was OPENED!  And milk was poured onto the cereal (in a different cereal bowl – the empty box/bowl is now part of IMoDD collection).  What were the results?  You can find out by watching the video.
