BRAC: The Sculpture of Food

3 Hanging Cafe

Do you miss Euell Gibbons?

Then Super Chef suggests you take a walk on the wild side with The Bronx River Art Center (BRAC).

Saturday April 11th, SPURSE, a creative design consultancy that focuses on social, ecological and ethical transformation, will lead a neighborhood walking tour.

We will learn the stories behind the “weeds” that have sculpted the neighborhood’s environment and think about new ways to interact with our ecosystem in a sustainable way. This walk will start at BRAC’s temporary gallery and compose a delicious spring foraged salad, ending with a picnic at Brook Park.

Make sure to also visit the center’s fascinating exhibit, The Sculpture of Food, on view until April 11.

In the works on display, food is both a building block for an art object and an idea to be conveyed. The materials chosen by each artist to construct the works, whether they be stone, fur, paper or candy, create significance that could contradict or add to the cultural weight that belongs to an everyday package of candy or a bloody side of beef.

Food for you mind.
