Troy University presents ‘Edible Art’ on Feb. 22

Posted: Monday, 21 February 2011

TROY—Troy University faculty will put their culinary and artistic skills to the test on Tuesday as the College of Communication and Fine Arts presents its sixth annual Edible Art event.

The event is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Studio, located at 300 E. Walnut St. in downtown Troy, and benefits the Troy Arts Council and the Johnson Center for the Arts.

Billed as an evening of sampling artistic food creations and musical entertainment, the event provides the opportunity for the University to give back to the Troy Arts Council, according to Dr. Maryjo Cochran, dean of TROY’s College of Communication and Fine Arts.

“The College wanted Edible Arts to be a fundraising event for the Troy Arts Council because the arts council has been so generous in helping to fund several of our events at the University and also sponsor many artistic performances for the people of Troy and Pike County,” Dr. Cochran said. “We believe the Edible Art is a valuable project to help promote the good works of the Troy Arts Council.”

The Edible Art exhibits will be judged on the basis of appearance and creativity and then will be available for sampling, Cochran said.

Tickets for the event are $15 for individuals, $25 for couples and $10 for students with valid IDs and will be available at the door. In addition, the Johnson Cultural Arts Center will be open from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for a reception prior to the Edible Art event.
