A new art exhibit will soon be joining Los Angeles this month and it carries a pretty sweet message.

Called The Beauty War, the exhibit is described as a Cake Labyrinth nestled in the heart of Los Angeles. Exhibitors will be taken through a series of beautifully crafted cake-inspired rooms that will each spark self-reflection and discovery.

“We are living a very vivid example of light and dark in conflict,” says artist Scott Hove. “The Beauty War depicts this struggle, and is an urgent reaction to what I have long considered a great injustice… our lives in servitude to a tireless machine.  We are in a moment now where we have a chance to design a more humane system for ourselves and our collective future. We don’t have to go back to how things were, nor should we want to.”

Those interested in checking out the Beauty War can find it at the Cakeland Gallery LA in Chinatown. The exhibit opens Friday, July 17, 2020, by appointment only and will be on view until December 31, 2020.

With the state of the world right now, many of us have taken the time to reflect on how we carry ourselves through actions and beliefs. Such an outlet for more self-reflection and personal growth is a welcome one in our book.

Plus we get to look at some cake.
