Homage to Guerilla Gardening
May 12—September 9, 2011
With the support of Artspace, the City of New Haven, and the Building Materials Reuse Association, Alison Williams will realize Homage to Guerrilla Gardening, a new public art installation in the nearby Chapel Street greenspace, The Lot. Working with a team of students and local volunteers, Williams will design and install a community garden using donated household materials from throughout New England. The public will be invited to participate in the growth and care of the garden as it gradually transforms the space during the 4 month long exhibition.
The project was organized to create an outdoor presence for the Artspace exhibition Marie Celeste, organized by Liza Statton.
