Celebrating the ways in which food appeals to our senses both orally and visually, The Carnegie’s ninth annual The Art of Food event and exhibition features some of our most experimental local chefs, bakers and sweets-mongers showing off their most artistically inspired creations. In addition to all the yummy eats, artist Pam Kravetz is organizing a multi-gallery “Candy Land” theme that corresponds with the classic board game. Expect people dressed as food characters and plenty of eye — and mouth — candy throughout. While it’s rare for an opening night of an exhibition to be the ideal time to see the artwork, this event is an exception. Like the food it features, performative living art is best served up hot and fresh.
