Stanford Slutsky plays with his food

Because stopping by Mojo Donuts for a dozen assorted will add calories to your gut, but visiting art museums won’t, we’re thankful for Stanford Slutsky’s comfort-food sculptures and paintings on display at the Coral Springs Museum of Art.

Slutsky’s “From Op to Pop” show is a display of artery-clogging food art, including strawberry-ice-cream bars; bamboo platters of sushi, soy sauce and chopsticks; boxes of multicolored chocolates; a bagel-and-lox sandwich; oversize pepperoni pizza slices; and, yes, chocolate-covered, sprinkled doughnuts.

Slutsky, 75, began his career amid the 1960s op-art movement, morphing construction materials such as dowels, hunks of plastic and handfuls of magnets into three-dimensional sculptures that toy with optical illusions. Slutsky switched to food-themed pop art in 2016 as a throwback to one of his first jobs: driving a Good Humor ice cream truck during the summer of 1957.
