At the Brooklyn Museum's annual Brooklyn Ball, artist Jennifer Rubell presented her version of "Icons." Her performance art/dinner gala housed Champagne fountains inspired by Marcel Duchamp; "drinking paintings" with spigots poking through the canvas that delivered guests their cocktails; her cast head molded out of cheese suspended in the air surrounded by heat guns, causing them to drip like fondue onto crackers below; and 700 blank paint tubes filled with dips and spreads. Guests served themselves and carved their own rabbits, turkeys, pigs, and beef; and the event ended with a 20-foot tall Andy Warhol head pinata filled with balloons and Hostess products- Snowballs and Twinkies.
