Hello.  My husband and I will be throwing a party during an upcoming art festival and am looking for ideas for food to serve. It would be cute to have artsy names to the food as well (such as Picasso's pizza.)  The party will be during the afternoon, so lighter foods are preferred.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

DALIcious Cukes: slice cukes, spread with cream cheese mixed with dill, arrange tiny carrot sticks or pepper slices at 5 o'clock.

Warhol's Shot Mix: make a tomato gazpacho and put into shot glasses. You could print out a couple of soup labels to use as placemats of sorts; cover with clear contact paper.

Leonardo's First Meal (as opposed to last supper!) This could be anything!

Botticellii's Birth of Bruschetta

Grilled Pollack?  You could spatter it with some sort of black sauce.

Lyubov Popova's (popovers, heh, get it?)

Chorizo Chirico--a sausage/veggies/cheese plate in the form of a Chirico.

Make a square sheet cake and decorate it like a Mondrian. 

So, this is really gory and maybe beyond the limit, but I'm thinking of some kind of play on Goya foods/Saturn devouring his children........... ?  (Do your friends have a sense of humor?)

Set up a fruit dish to mirror a Cezanne still life and see if anyone gets it.

Klee pot fish (a la Around the Fish, of course)

Tanguy shrimp or veggie dip--with lime or lemon, something citrusy

Pears Murphy (with a plastic wasp)

Richard Pousette-Tart

Can I resist Francis Bacon?  No, I cannot.

To drink, Seymore Lipton tea.

Shrimp and Magrittes

Ode to Oldenberg:  Cheeseburgers, Floor Cake and a very large ice cream cone

Nigiri Noguci

Another stretch: Skate wing a la Man Ray.  There's a nice skate wing recipe on the food network's site, from the one chef who does simple Asian dishes, can't remember his name.

I think I've run out of steam Smiley

And all of it served Dubuffet style, naturally Wink

Ooh, ooh, I got another.  I don't know how elaborate your decor will be, but maybe you could get a new toilet bowl and serve Marcel Duchampagne in it !  heeee hee

Okay, one more.  Rubens sandwiches.

And maybe you can serve something El Greco?

Quiche Claude Lorrain?

Cocktails with Vermeer chocolate liqueur

[look what you've done to me.....I can't stop]

Fussili Fuseli.

Mackintosh apples?

All these ideas are great.  Maybe I should serve Campbells tomato soup and see if anyone gets the reference.  Smiley

Edvard Munchies... teeheehee......

You could set out loads and loads of smarties in the style of one of Damien Hirst's dot pictures......
