Van Gogh's Starry Night in Cereal

So this is impressive: A group of 150 high school students in Utah have created a 6,400-square-foot replica of Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night out of two tons breakfast cereal — Malt-O-Meal to be exact. It took them almost a week to complete the entire thing; a plastic sheet with an outline of the design dictated which colors went where. This epic project reminds us of the more small-scale works (at least in comparison) found in San Francisco-based artist Ryan Alexiev‘s campy Cereal Mosaics series; check out images from that after the jump.
