Amazing Gingerbread Replicas of Famous Art Museums

He’s done Beatles in burnt toast, Damien Hirst in M&Ms, and Rothko in Rice, but Henry Hargreaves‘ latest juxtaposition of food and art may be his most impressive. Collaborating with stylist Caitlin Levin, the artist has used those most seasonal of ingredients — candy and gingerbread — to recreate some of the world’s most famous art museums, from the Guggenheim to the Louvre. If you’re in Miami for Art Basel later this week, be sure to stop by Dylan’s Candy Bar and see the sculptures in person; if not, these dramatic black-and-white photos (spotted via Neatorama and Junk Culture) seem almost as good — although not nearly as tasty — as the real thing.
