His Milkshake Brings the Butter to the Art??

Jim Victor, renowned sculptor, Conshohocken native and teacher at Fleisher Art Memorial, is at it again, one upping himself with epic feats of food sculpture. Taking cues from the number one American song in 1954, “Shake, Rattle and Roll”, Victor created his newest sculpture for the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show (Jan 4 – 11). The sculpture, sponsored by Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association and Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program, features a family enjoying a tasty milkshake while watching an enraptured couple of dancing cows… the entire scene is HAND CRAFTED OUT OF BUTTER!!!…and nearly 1,000 pounds of it!

When asked about the sculpture PA Agriculture secretary  George Greig“For 60 years, milkshakes have been part of the Farm Show tradition of celebrating Pennsylvania agriculture. What may seem like just a great drink in a plastic cup is a lot more – it’s a representation of the state’s 7,200 dairy farm families who grow Pennsylvania by driving the economy, creating jobs and supplying quality products to consumers.” BAM! Basically he said its a good look to eat more local butter. Done and done.
