Snap Your Snack at Noon on the 24th; The Results Will Be Shown at the Brooklyn Art Library next Month

The Art House Co-op–the folks behind the Sketchbook Project in the Brooklyn Art Library at 103 N. Third Street in Williamsburg–have launched another art project we’d like to bring your attention to. It’s called The Meal: Documenting a Global Snack, and on February 24th they’re asking photographers from around the world to participate by snapping what you’re snacking on at 12 pm EST.

Ah, the burger pic. Always a classic. 

Our new photo editor Rebecca McAlpin (that’s her awesome burger shot above) just clued us into to a cool project run by The Art House Co-op in Brooklyn. They’re the folks behind the Sketchbook Project, which is housed in the Brooklyn Art Library at 103 N. Third Street in Williamsburg. They’ve launched another collective art project we’d like to bring your attention to. It’s called The Meal: Documenting a Global Snack, and on February 24th they’re asking photographers from around the world to participate by snapping what you’re snacking on at 12 pm EST. Then you mail the results to the Library as a 4×6 print (matte, no borders) by March 5th. (Details, address and rules here.) They’ll eventually be shown as a food photo exhibit at The Brooklyn Art Library on March 31st. We’re hoping Rebecca brings that burger. Speaking of, we’d totally give a free subscription to Edible Manhattan to the first burger fiend who can tell us in the comments below where this picture was taken.

    I BELIEVE THAT BURGER SHOT WAS TAKEN AT THE FAMOUS - “JIMMYS BAR B QUE – LOCATED AT THE CORNER OF 33RD & 8TH AVENUE. ACROSS THE STREET FROM PENN STATION N.Y. CITY!

    Nice try, LOVELIFE! It’s not Jimmy’s, but given the checkered tablecloths, that’s a good guess. I’ve actually been to Jimmy’s several times (having worked a the Daily News in a former lifetime) but I have never had their burger. Does it really look like this one? I have to try it, if so….
