The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Pennsylvania and its potential impact on our venues and events. The safety of our guests, staff, and artists is of paramount importance and as we follow the leadership of our public health and government officials, all Pittsburgh Cultural Trust performances, exhibitions, films, and events through April 6 have been cancelled or postponed.

As a result, The Pittsburgh Humanities Festival has been cancelled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Our guest services team will be in touch within the next 10 days regarding ticket options.

with Jasmine Cho

This event is a Core Conversation at the 2020 Pittsburgh Humanities Festival. See the full Core Conversation lineup here.

This session is located in the Peirce Studio at the Trust Arts Education Center.

Jasmine Cho will discuss her work as a baker based in Pittsburgh and how she uses the art of cookie making and decorating as a therapy and to promote Asian American representation. She creates intricate, hand-drawn cookie portraits of Asian American figures as a way to increase representation and raise awareness of Asian American history and identity.

Jasmine Cho is a Pittsburgh-based artist, author, and cookie activist most known for using portrait cookies to elevate representation for the AAPI community. Her work has been featured internationally on various media outlets including NPR, HuffPost, CBS This Morning, and The Korea Daily. A TEDx speaker and Food Network Champion (“Christmas Cookie Challenge”), Jasmine is currently working toward developing a research-based bake therapy program rooted in the field of art therapy.
