While the Smithsonian’s Portraits of Pittsburgh exhibition is filled with a range of portrait styles, none are as unique as the portraits that Pittsburgh artist Jasmine Cho paints onto cookies.

Join Jasmine for a portrait demonstration and conversation about her unique combination of cookie art and social justice. Explore how Jasmine uses cookies to initiate conversations on race, creating intricate portraits of important Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and giving representation to a historically underrepresented community.

Want to try your hand at creating cookie art? An optional cookie kit is also available for purchase for $10, with contactless pick-up available at the History Center in advance of the virtual program. These cookie kits are limited supply.
