Indulge in a Holiday Feast for the eyes!

When you’re visiting Union Square this season, tour the Kiosk Museum to enjoy five courses of Creativity Explored artwork. The Parisian style kiosks sprinkled along downtown sidewalks have been transformed into mini-museum displays that will feature scrumptious CE artwork.

From imaginative ceramic cupcakes to digital drawings of favorite foods, Holiday Feast is an eclectic collection of culinary-inspired artwork by Andrew Bixler, Camille Holvoet, Jesus Huezo, Hector Lopez, Quintin Rodriguez, Yukari Sakura, and Miyuki Tsurukawa. Whether you’re shopping Union Square for holiday gifts or skating the ice rink, take a walk around the plaza and treat yourself to a sampling of CE art!

About the Kiosk Museum:

Community Arts International has been developing museum exhibitions in unexpected venues for over thirty years. They brought the concept of popular arts to museums, starting at The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco where they exhibited disposable Pop Art, including Andy Warhol paper dresses and Peter Max bed sheets. In collaboration with HOK and JCDecaux , they now bring art to the streets of San Francisco by converting the unused newsstand kiosks into Kiosk Museums.

As we wander the city, standing at a bus stop or waiting in line, we invariably look to our mobile devices for distraction. But anywhere one looks–in shop windows, restaurant counters, stacked in the corner of a room–there are aesthetic vignettes to enjoy. The goal of the Kiosk Museum project is to capture and contextualize these moments, creating a museum experience in these repurposed diminutive urban spaces that never close.
