Winner of the 2005 Gilroy Garlic Festival Poster Contest


This piece features a rustic sepia image of garlic bulbs.  The artist,

Jennifer Stearns Lau, spent much time looking at garlic as artwork

and created a photograph looking down at four zinc cups with a bulb

of garlic sitting in each. The angle of the sun makes the garlic look

like porcelain.
This photograph is located in the Mezzanine across from the Quiet

Study Room.
