Christmas is the time of year for gingerbread houses, but while most of us will attempt a simple structure, decorated with frosting and candy canes, Dylan's Candy Bar will focus on dramatically more intricate cookie structures for what could be the sweetest exhibit at Art Basel.
The mega candy store will host an art gallery installation by photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Caitlin Levin, who have collaborated on several pieces that interpret some of the world's most iconic structures as gingerbread houses.
The Louvre has never been so delicious.
On Friday, December 6 from 6 - 8 p.m., guests will be able to see recreations of the Louvre in Paris, the Guggenheim in New York City, and the Tate Modern in London, as well as other famous buildings made from gingerbread stationed throughout the store.
Please don't eat the art.
The exhibit is free, but guests are asked to refrain from tasting (or biting) the art.
