Sure, art "feeds your soul," but if you were trapped on a deserted island for a year which would you rather have -- a Rembrandt or a year's supply of bacon and bourbon?

And yet, we agree there is a time when food and art intersect. A chef can create a dish that's as visually stunning as it is delicious. And, in turn, food can act as a muse for painters and sculptors who see the beauty in the curve of an apple or the texture of a cheese.

With an eye for art and an empty stomach, we took in two of Midtown's biggest art week shows, Art Miami and Context. Trends we spotted? Sweets are sinful and kids can be really creepy.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
