Competition challenges the public to recreate art and design classics through the medium of food.
WOULD you eat a Damien Hirst masterpiece?
The British creative charity Art Fund is challenging the public to recreate art and design classics through the medium of food, in a new initiative called Edible Masterpieces.
The challenge is to create a theoretically edible work of art inspired by a cultural icon, famous painting or even an iconic landmark or building. Any funds raised via the initiative will support British museums and galleries including the Tate and the National Gallery.
The project will run until May 9 and participants should upload photos of their creations to the Art Fund’s social media channels using the hashtag #ediblemasterpieces.
Several of the charity’s inspirational recipes involve cake, but edible masterpieces can be created using vegetables, fruit, cheese or even sugar. The top 25 submissions will be shortlisted and entered into a final competition. – AFP Relaxnews
