I was recently e-mailed about setting up a guest post to share the amazing, edible artwork of Leah Rosenberg, from SF MOMA. She creates desserts inspired by iconic Modern artists like Mondrian, Matisse, and Bucky Fuller. As soon as my eyes made their way through the email and landed on the photographs of her work, I knew it was something special and I needed to share. Below is a short bio about the artist, as well as a very well produced video about her amazing edible art (ALL AGES PRODUCTIONS, a young, super creative Philly production house, made the video). I hope you find her work as inspiring as I do. It always brightens my day to see how art can be integrated into our daily lives.


Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Rosenberg received her MFA in 2008 from the California College of the Arts and her BFA in Visual Arts from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2003. Her paintings, paint-based sculptures and cakes have been exhibited throughout the US and Canada. She is currently part of a trio of pastry chefs at the Blue Bottle Coffee rooftop garden café at SFMOMA that create  desserts and some savory bites based on rotating artworks in the museum’s collection as well as touring exhibitions.  Many of the desserts and the stories that accompany them have taken the form of a book Modern Art Desserts, which came out on April 16, 2013 (written by Caitlin Freeman, published by Ten Speed Press).
