The stars have aligned. This weekend, New Yorkers can spend both Saturday and Sunday eating salad artworks.

On Satuday, at 3 p.m., salad will be served as part of Darren Bader’s great show at MoMA PS1, “Images.” (There are also burritos in the exhibition, but visitors are not allowed to eat them, as far as we know.)

But Mr. Bader’s salad service happens every Saturday—as well as every Monday at 2:15 p.m. What makes this weekend special is that, as we noted in the past, Allison Knowles is going to be serving up a salad for her Make a Salad performance, which she first performed in 1962, on the High Line at West 16th Street. She’s doing the piece in honor of Earth Day, and will begin work at 10 a.m., toss the salad at 12 p.m. and serve it up at 12:15.

To balance all of that healthful eating, why not have a slice or two of Klimt Cake at the Neue Galerie’s Cafe Sabarsky?
