Fifteen years ago of so, I attended a series of lectures at the Toledo
Museum of art on the topic of food and art. It was quite enjoyable. At
least one of the evenings was led by Vincent Price. As I remember it was
mainly slides and looking at depictions of food in paintings. But how
about Claes Oldenburg and his soft sculpture foods? We've all seen too
many elementary project where clay is modeled to look like food! Ann W.
