SATURDAY, February 14 Presidential Cupcakes Smithsonian American Art Museum 8th and F Streets NW, DC 12pm - 6:30pm Free, and tasty! Artist and baker Zilly Rosen’s medium of choice isn’t paint or clay; she prefers flour, frosting, and fondant! In honor of Presidents’ Day, Zilly will create a portrait, A New Birth of Freedom, made entirely of cupcakes, which celebrates President Barack Obama’s inauguration and the 200th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s birth. View Zilly’s temporary installation, comprised of more than 5,000 cupcakes, from noon until 5 p.m. from the mezzanine levels of the museum’s Luce Foundation Center. Following the Presidential Family Fun Day festivities in the Kogod Courtyard, take part in the de-installation of this piece by sampling a cupcake. This presidential portrait is not only distinguished but delicious!
