What We Eat, Who We Are
This was a two-day art residency with teenagers at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, CA in the Fall of 2009. Led by Karla Diaz and assisted by Raul Vasquez, this workshops were inspired by Wayne Thiebaud’s exhibition.  Teenagers contemplated ideas about design, color and their historical importance as they learned to produce their own food-based  hat sculptures from recycled materials such as wrappers, napkins, and cardboard paper.  The teens examined  hidden, cultural histories through urban design in food products.
