Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Chocolate more often appears in hearty confections than art collections. But representations of the sweet treat showed up on the dining hall wall of Moore College of Art & Design during The Art of Chocolate, the first annual food art competition.
SAGE Dining Services' Food Service Director Anthony Condo and the college's Career Center challenged sophomore students to interpret the theme in a media of their choosing--as long as they didn't use real chocolate.
The works were featured in a gallery space in the dining hall from January 17 to February 6. And Condo served on the jury that recognized the top creations.
SAGE awarded gift cards to the top three artists and gave every entrant a voucher for a free dessert.
