ABOUT COVER ARTIST MARGO RIVERA-WEISS
AND THE MAP PROJECT

Self-portrait collage with postage stamps by Margo Rivera-Weiss

 

Longtime readers of Edible East Bay may recall the first time the work of Margo Rivera-Weiss appeared on our cover. It was the Harvest 2008 issue, when we showcased Margo’s painting of two apples. Since then, their work has graced the covers of our Fall 2012, Winter 2014, Spring 2015, and Spring 2017 issues.

Margo’s work also spices up pages in nearly every issue and for over two years now the magazine has included East Bay food-subject maps: Worker Cooperatives (Summer 2017), Food Justice Organizations (Fall 2018), Favorite Fish Tacos (Spring 2019), Favorite Scoops of Summer (Summer 2019), and Favorite Asian Noodles (Fall 2019). In this issue the map is on chocolate, and next issue we’re hoping to do pizza. You can explore all the maps here.

Earlier this year, the Oakland Museum of California invited Margo to submit two of their Edible East Bay maps (Worker Cooperatives and Favorite Fish Tacos) to be displayed as part of You Are Here: California Stories on the Map, an exhibition opening on February 14, 2020.

Margo makes food-related art and draws daily. Connect with them at margoriveraweiss.com or on Facebook at Margo Rivera-Weiss - Art. Margo occasionally leads sketching gatherings with East Bay Sketchers.
