I attended the opening night of an event that combines two of my favorite things; art and food. The “Art of Food” exhibit is in it’s 7th year at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center.
The opening night exhibit showcased various art with a food theme along with food that was artistic and delicious from top chefs at some of the best restaurants in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.
The focal point on the lower floor featured ladies who modeled unique dresses that each had a food theme.
How about using oranges to make roses?
How about peeps?
Or incorporating fortune cookies into your skirt?
Or incorporating coffee filters that double as a dress?
I thought this next dress reminded me of lemon merinque. My friend thought it was supposed to resemble a marshmellow.
What do you think?
My other focus was the food! I’ll admit that I had been saving room in my stomach all day in anticipation of what my tastebuds were going to experience from all of the amazing restaurants. They did not disappoint!
I thought this potted plant presentation concept for the hummus was really creative.
I felt that it was my duty to sample at each chef’s table.
It would be rude to leave someone out right????
Sorry, the food is long gone but you can still check out some great art.
The opening night reception sold out this year so make sure you buy tickets early for next year!
You can still see “The Art of Food” exhibit at the Carnegie from March 1-21.
The Carnegie is located at 1028 Scott Blvd in Covington.
