The Heinz History Center will present "Jasmine Cho’s Portraits in Icing: The Intersection of Representation, Race, and Cookies" online on September 24.
While the Smithsonian’s Portraits of Pittsburgh exhibition is filled with a range of portrait styles, none are as unique as the portraits that Pittsburgh artist Jasmine Cho paints onto cookies. Join Jasmine for a portrait demonstration and conversation about her unique combination of cookie art and social justice. Explore how Jasmine uses cookies to initiate conversations on race, creating intricate portraits of important Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and giving representation to a historically underrepresented community.
Tickets for the discussion and demonstration are $5 and available online.
