(Above: The sky’s the limit when it comes to making three-dimensional art out of Jello, and this example comes from none other than Maude Kerns Art Center director Marsha Shankman.)

For the 29th time, the Maude Kerns Art Center will be hosting its annual Jello Art Show, which means, of course, that every piece of artwork will be made from the squiggly stuff.
Everyone with a hankering to enter the one-day show needs to show up at the art center between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on April 1 to drop off their masterpieces, along with a $3 fee for each entry.
The exhibit itself opens at 5 p.m. and goes to 8 p.m., and besides marveling at all the art, there will be entertainment by the Radar Angels at 7 p.m.
Those who don’t have items in the show may participate in another way, by bringing their favorite jello snacks to share at the Tacky Food Buffet during the event.
The theme for this year’s jello art exhibit is “Fool’s Jello,” evoking images of jesters, fool’s gold or — appropriately enough — April Fool’s Day.
All the Jello art must be taken away by its creators immediately after the show.
