Let Them Eat Cake
This month, luxury prefabrication is all the craze at the Hollywood Art and Culture Center. Its latest gallery, "Everyone Wants a Piece of This Cake," uses as a medium fake cakes on silver platters iced with dazzling portraits of celebrities. Beyonce, Britney, Barack, and the Beatles are there on the cakes, which look like materialized fetishes. Note: you cant have the cakes, nor can you eat them.
Jonathan Stein, the artist, is something of an innovator on the pop art scene. His fabulously bejeweled and ruby-encrusted box of Ritz Crackers, for instance, is about as impressive as Warhols can of Campbells Soup. You can catch a reception with Stein from 6 to 9 p.m. on January 22. The opening reception is tonight and the cakes are on display till February 15.
Find the Art & Culture Center at 1650 Harrison St. in Hollywood. Tickets cost $7 or less. For gallery hours and more info, call 954-921-3274, or visit artandculturecenter.org.
