Baking a thanksgiving turkey can definitely be considered a form of public art. People who make home baked thanksgiving turkeys often take it very seriously. A lot of thought often goes into the presentation of a thanksgiving turkey, and a lot of people will comment on how "beautiful" and delicious the turkey looks. In this way, a thanksgiving turkey can be considered a form of art. It is just like any other "food art". People often see how bakers turn cupcakes into a work of art by making images or icing effects on the tops of the cupcakes, or just making amazing looking cupcakes. Not as many people would see a thanksgiving turkey as a work of art, but it follows the same concept as cupcake art.
