Artist Wendy Kveck on Women and Wedding Cakes

Wendy Kveck is making wedding cakes.  Really BIG wedding cakes.  The 10-foot tall "cakes" are made of cardboard, and frosted in different paints.  She will also decorate them with plastic flowers, jewels, and other "feminine" items.  The exhibit also encourages the audience to contribute comments, and includes paintings and an interactive CD.  Artist Wendy Kveck talks to us about stereotypes about women, and how today's world encourages women to put their best "decorated cake" self forward.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
