Ice Cream Themed Art Exhibit To Remind Us Joy Still Exists In The World

Sculptor Peter Anton wants us to keep in mind that the earth is still a very tasty place.

There’s been a lot of bad news in the last few weeks. Really, REALLY bad news. As a result, it can be easy to overlook the small pleasures of summer, like catching fireflies or eating a gigantic cone of ice cream in the park. Sculptor Peter Anton wants to remind us that life is still good, and over the last two decades has specialized in creating large-scale “food art” installations that have hung in galleries, museums, and even the homes of Keith Richards and Jordanian royalty. “In my sculptures I like to alter and overstate foods to give them new meanings,” Anton explains. “I have an innate reverence for the things we eat. Food brings people together and there is no better way to celebrate life.” Anton believes that good food can bring about the same kind of spiritual fervor and connection that religion can, and for his last exhibition,Foodhist Temple” at UNIX Gallery New York, created a literal place of worship for food lovers.

For his most recent exhibition, “FROST BITE”—currently on display at Gallery Valentine in East Hampton through August 13—the artist pays homage to “our wildest childhood fantasies” by transforming the space into a giant, overflowing ice cream freezer.

Present are everything from King Cones to Strawberry Shortcake bars, lollipops, and more.

Called “The Best Art for Ice Cream Lovers” by Food & Wine Magazine, the exhibit is a nice reminder that even though the world feels like it’s imploding we can still all enjoy a huge (albeit fake) Good Humor bar together.

“FROST BITE” will be up till the 13th over at Gallery Valentine in East Hampton, NY.


Between Alexa, Siri, and Google, artificial intelligence is quickly changing us and the way we live. We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

Yad Vashem

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
