Thanksgiving Dinners Reconstituted as Famous Works of Art


Thanksgiving! From what I can gather, it’s a time to eat yourself senseless and argue with your family. Huzzah! But hey, if the whole eating-yourself-stupid business isn’t especially appealing, there are other ways you can amuse yourself with apparently endless amounts of food: like making works of art out of them! This brings us to the work of artist Hannah Rothstein, which we spotted at Beautiful Decay. Rothstein has arranged the ingredients of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, arranged in the style of various well-known artists. Is this an epochal work of art that’s going to change the world? No. Is it kinda awesome nonetheless? Why, yes. Yes, it is. (Especially the Magritte.)
