Macaroni art

A picture made by using pasta

Macaroni art, sometimes referred to as macaroni crafts or pasta art, is artwork that is made of dry macaroni or other pasta.[1] The works commonly consist of individual pieces of macaroni glued to a surface to produce a mosaic. However, works may take the form of sculptures.

This type of art is produced during arts and crafts classes at pre-school.[2] Today, it has evolved to become an artform practiced by adults.[citation needed]

In popular cultureEdit

Pasta art was used to advertise a Nancy Sinatra concert at the world famous Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. The art the poster was made from is composed entirely of Pasta e Fagioli (pasta and beans). Alphabet pasta spells out the lyrics for her hit "These Boots Are Made For Walking".[3]

Another example of pasta art was featured in an episode of the television sitcom Seinfeld. Cosmo Kramer produced a small sculpture made of fusilli called "Fusili Jerry".
