Presidential Cupcakes: Time Lapse

February 13–14, 2009

Watch artist Zilly Rosen and her group create A New Birth of Freedom, a double portrait of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama made from more than 5,600 cupcakes. The piece took five hours to lay out but it took a lot less time to "de-install" (i.e. eat!).
