Eat Art in Syracuse?!

Hey, check it out! We're headed to The Delavan Gallery to install the grid work for my interactive cupcake mural! Yep...cupcakes...hanging in a grid...on the wall...interactive (as in you get to eat it!!) How cool is that?!

The installation along with a cookie mosaic (pictured above) also being installed are part of the kick off for monthly drawings at
The Syracuse Th3 Coalition events across Syracuse. Not familiar with Th3? Th3 is a citywide art open in Syracuse, New York, that takes place on the third Thursday of each month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. This ambitious project, initiated by the Everson Museum of Art and the Delavan Art Gallery, is joined by the most distinctive venues in the city in a grand event to bring the artistic experience to the public. Th3 establishes Syracuse as a city for the arts in this initiative to reach out its local and regional communities. (taken from Th3 website)

For more info you can go to their website of course, and for sure head over to the Th3 blog for a run down of tomorrow's events!

There will be a second cupcake mural at one of the other locations...I guess you'll just have to check 'em all out if you want to find it. And don't forget to enter the drawing for this month's raffle. It's a She Takes The Cake cake of course! Inspired by the sunflower paintings of Van Gogh, Monet, O'Keeffe, and Caillebotte; I've done a small sunflower rendition of my own. You'll be able to see it at each location and then I'll recreate it in delicious cake for the winner!
Art never tasted so good!

Hope to see you there!

Once you've had a peek at the cookie mosaic and cupcake murals you're gonna want know where to find me!
