Samford University’s Visual Arts Department–in partnership with its counterpart at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the Forestall Art Center, Birmingham Piggly Wiggly stores, and the Birmingham Museum of Art (BMA)–will present an exhibition of artwork made from food March 2. 

The “Salvador's Deli” event at BMA, featuring the work of 80 Birmingham-area artists, including several Samford students and faculty, will raise funds for local school students in need of art supplies.

The evening of art, food, music and fun will begin at 5 p.m. and conclude at 7 p.m., with a “People’s Choice” award presentation at 6 p.m.

Admission is $10, with proceeds supporting the evening’s cause.
