"The Little Mermaid" by Claire Buchanan was made of fish, guacamole, seaweed, figs, and mashed potatoes, and was served with scalloped potatoes.

You can eat the artwork after a free public viewing Monday, March 28 at Moore College of Art and Design on Logan Square.

Students have been assigned to create edible artworks related to a book or book title.

Previous entries include A Clockwork Orange (an orange almond cake with a working clock in it), S'more and Peace (a giant s'more sandwich), Alice in Wonderbread (a Wonder Bread and jelly concoction), and Reading Rainbow (made of cheesecake clouds, a Styrofoam arch, and a rainbow of colored fruits on toothpicks).

After the critiques, starting at 6:30 p.m., the feasting begins.

Though the aforementioned concoctions seem tasty enough, one previous entry, The Little Mermaid, was a tableau comprising fish, guacamole, seaweed, figs, and mashed potatoes, and was served with scalloped potatoes.
