Too pretty to eat: Local food art show


If your hobby is collecting porcelain dolls, or crochet or even record album art, you inherently have something delightful to gaze upon each day, in reminder of your good taste in the finer things in life. But what if your hobby is going out to eat? Or if your major interest in life is in pursuit of consumables? All of the evidence nodding to that existence is in constant, inherent disappearance.

But not anymore! 

Head over to the Midwest Pantry Local Food Art Show at Solar Arts by Chowgirls, this Sunday, October 4, for a crack at 18 limited-edition posters created by Minnesota artists and designers in celebration of local food producers. Only 30 of each poster will be made available, so they are true collector's items. 

Naturally, food samples will be available from local producers, many of those depicted in the art, as well as a cash bar and live music. 

The event is free, and proceeds from the posters go to support Free Arts Minnesota, a local organization helping kids and teens who have experienced poverty, homelessness, abuse, and mental illness. 

And bring the kids. The event is family-friendly. 

Sunday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Solar Arts by Chowgirls
