What would a Thanksgiving meal look like if Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Jean‑Michel Basquiat, or Damien Hirst was plating dinner?
Last Thanksgiving, Berkeley, California–based Hannah Rothstein, currently artist in residence at Planet Labs, decided to imagine how 10 famous artists would plate Thanksgiving’s traditional meal of turkey, gravy, corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. Her series “Thanksgiving Special” was a whimsical homage to the art of plating.
