Food and music are two things that can both bring people together. A person’s favorite food or music can also give insight as to who that person is, as well as serve as forms of self-expression. This installation shows an artist, beloved by many around the world, Elvis Presley. His portrait is made from peanut butter and bananas, two ingredients crucial to his favorite sandwich. This portrait is displayed in one of the music rooms in the Bowld Commons building on top of a piano. This location was chosen because like food and music, this room also serves to bring community through fellowship and music.
