The Great Tortilla Conspiracy comes to Catskill

"ART IS FOOD," Bread and Puppet Theater's Cheap Art Manifesto famously declared in 1984. "You can't EAT it BUT it FEEDS you."
But sometimes you can eat art -- maybe with a bit of melted cheese and a dash of hot sauce. This weekend, Catskill's ongoing Wall Street To Main Street festival, which runs from March 17 through May 31, features the participatory (and 100 percent edible) art of West Coast printmaker Jos Sances and the Great Tortilla Conspiracy.
Sances will be screenprinting tortillas, either in ink to keep or chocolate to eat, at the BRIK Gallery at 473 Main Street from 1pm-5pm on Saturday, April 28. Bring your own drawing to be immortalized in tortilla form, or choose one from the Great Tortilla Conspiracy's inventory. (If you've ever yearned for a picture of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on a tortilla, Saturday's your lucky day.)
