Our favorite Jell-O artist Liz Hickok wrote to us about her latest project - and yes, it does have a distinct political message:
The piece is called "The First 100 Days: The White House in Jell-O". The White House starts out as Obama inherited it on day one of his administration: a bit old and moldy. Set to the tune of “America the Beautiful,” the iconic structure slowly transforms into a fresh, glowing, and proud symbol of hope.
Whether you agree with Liz's politics or not, it's spiffy to see the White House sculpted out of Jell-O (and here I thought that jiggliness went out with Bill Clinton oh so many years ago!): Link [with embedded YouTube clip] - Thanks Liz!
By the way, if you're in San Francisco this weekend (April 25 - 26), be sure to attend the Mission Open Studios (or the Mission Studio Stroll) - a neighborhood crawl to visit 8 artists' groups including more than 100 working artists in the Mission District of San Francisco: 1890 Bryant St. at the corner of Mariposa (Liz is in Studio #211 - say hello to her
for me if you're there). More info: 1890 Bryant | Mission Artists United
