Art and AgriCulture

April 20, 2023 @ 6:30pm - 7:30pm

What are the food stories that most urgently need to be shared?

“Another thing we lost is culture. . . look at the word agriculture. We lost that connection. And so now it’s going back to the culture of agriculture. Why do we grow the food that we do?” – Karen Washington

Why do we grow the foods we do? How is culture tied to our local foodways and agricultural systems? In this weekly series, create works of art using different artmaking techniques with visiting artists to celebrate food and agricultural practices, the histories and stories that shape our relationship to food, and creative ways we connect with our foodways.

Through various techniques like bookmaking, printmaking, collage, sculpture, and alternative photography processes, participants will create artwork that begins to answer the question: Where is the culture in agriculture?

This is a free drop-in program. Come to every class to build on your skill or come to one or two that you are available for. This class will end in a culminating Community Spring Show to exhibit your work in our greenhouse. Come and explore your relationship to food and agriculture and the ways these systems can connect us more deeply to our local ecosystems and communities.
