As part of a suite of #MuseumFromHome offerings, Austin's Blanton Museum of Art posited a bake-off challenge online, with a call for locals and global citizens to make edible renditions of the museum's collection artworks.

Professional and amateur entrants were judged separately and the winning results were some scrumptious art pieces. The iconic "Austin" by Ellsworth Kelly was a popular remake with St. Elmo Architecture Studio voted as one winner for its version made in sugar cookie with polychrome squares.

Not only for baking inspiration, the Blanton's online offerings include a collections database with information and images for many of the 19,000 works in its permanent collection, plus a rich repository of informative and engaging video content, like an in-depth video essay series on Ellsworth Kelly’s "Austin," which the artist described as "a place of calm and light.”
