Last weekend we unexpectedly had to postpone the Cake March event we had originally planned due to unforeseen circumstances. We wanted to give everyone one last chance to drop by and see the show. Because baking cakes and mounting protests takes time… the Cake March WILL be rescheduled for later this summer, after the run of the exhibition. We still want to protest and we still want to raise funds for our amazing neighborhood programs! Please keep an eye out for more details on that to come!

& Eat It, Too! is a group exhibition featuring artists that utilize the visual language of cake and cake decorating to address difficult subjects, exposing raw personal and political narratives. Some artists consider cake as a material that can overcome boundaries and open up conversations in a way that draws you in with its sweetness and slowly reveals its layered meaning. Others use playful forms and loaded symbolism to recall memories or dismantle ideas and norms embedded in our society, leveraging a cake’s ability to level the playing field.
