“Eat Your Heart Out" is a special month long exhibition showcasing original artworks inspired by our appetite’s objects of affection.
Grandma always said that when you love someone you cook for them. This act, cooking, is love made manifest. Meals have a way of capturing memories, emotions and feelings by pulling all of the senses into a specific moment. It is the lingering of that moment that has inspired so many artists of the past. The Danish movie Babette’s Feast comes to mind in particular.
Local superstar chefs and culinary artists Chris Kobayashi of Artisan, Santos MacDonal of Il Cortile, and Laurent Grangien of Bistro Laurent serve as the jurors and judges for this unique display of artworks dealing with love and food.
