SFA Seeks Sweet Artwork

Looking forward to our fall symposium, we seek art that celebrates sugar and sweetness. Won't you be so kind as to suggest an artist or artwork?

Things to know: Ideally, the artist works in the Southern vernacular. We prefer painting to photography. And we like bright colors. Usually, we buy the painting--and the right to reproduce it--from the artist and then sell the work at the symposium to cover costs. But we're open to other arrangements.

Take a look at http://www.southernfoodways.com/sym_past.shtml and click on individual years to see some of our past selections.

And then, by April 15, send your suggestions to sfamail@olemiss.edu. Include, if you are able, the artist's web site, a museum web site, or an image of a particular artwork.
