Local Food Stylist to Create Gingerbread Version of Skid Row
Here's something that will jar you out of your holiday fantasyland: Food stylist Sienna DeGovia will be creating a gingerbread mock up of Skid Row this weekend in tandem with the Craft in America organization in order to create awareness around hunger in our city.
DeGovia's editorial work has appeared in Bon Appetit, Food Network Magazine, and the LA Times Magazine to name a few. Her website showcases some of the more tonge-in-cheek fine art work she's done with food, which includes a model ship made of bacon a la Epic Mealtime, a photo of a dude who looks like he's been blasted through the brains with cherry pie, and a man wearing a proscuitto necktie.
Her Skid Row stylings, entitled "Home Sweet Homeless," will be done in tandem with Craft in America's new series called Good Enough to Eat: the Fusion of Food and Craft. These shows explore work by artists that are redefining the role of handcrafted objects in relationship to our increasingly food-centric culture.
There is no fee to view the performance, but viewers are encouraged to bring canned food which will be donated to a local homeless shelter. The gingerbread house making will go on form 12 p.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday in the Craft in America storefront window.
