Sunday Art Review: Burgers in Perspective

With the July 4th holiday just around the corner, it seemed appropriate to chose a quintessential American icon as this week's inspiration for Sunday Art Review: Burgers in Perspective. The concept of hamburgers came from the Germans, in the city of Hamburg (not surprisingly). The great American Hamburger first appeared on menus as early as 1836, but the cheeseburger wasn't born until 1924 in Pasadena California. I can't say that I eat many cheeseburgers anymore, although in my younger days it was a favorite. Nowadays if I want a burger, I'll usually make a turkey burger on the grill with all the fixin's. So whether you eat hamburgers, cheeseburgers, veggieburgers or none at all, I hope you enjoy today's Sunday Art Review.
