Down To Earth – Artists Create Edible Landscapes


Down to Earth: Artists Create Edible Landscapes is an Environmental Art exhibition that highlights the growing focus and emergence of “green” principles and sustainability in relationship to food, art, design and agriculture.  Guest Curator Amy Lipton of New York’s ecoartspace selected six artists or artist teams who are all working to create socially engaging interventions in the landscape related to food and agriculture, creating an aesthetic and cultural link between art and farming.

Joan Bankemper (New York, NY) – Willa – a contemporary “earthwork” which will function as a medicinal herb garden.

Knox Cummin (Philadelphia, PA) Not Drain Away- A rain water collection sculpture off of the roof of the existing farmhouse complete with rain barrels, piping and irrigation system, which waters the American Roots garden.

Ann Rosenthal and Steffi Domike (Pittsburgh, PA) – An American Roots Garden – Foods common to early America, including Native American crops and those brought by settlers and immigrants.

Simon Draper and the Habitat for Artists Collective, with Todd Sargood and Odin Cathcart, (Hudson Valley, NY) Jeff Bailey ( Phila, PA) and Cathy Lebowitz (New York, NY) – Drawn to / Drawn from the Garden – A mini art studio, potting shed, and seven vegetable/flower gardens.

Stacy Levy (Spring Mills, PA)  – Kept Out – An enclosure of blue metal fencing that will exclude deer from a small piece of the woods as a way to investigate how the deer alter their own edible landscape.

Susan Leibovitz Steinman (San Francisco, CA) – Urban Defense – a five-sided permaculture urban forest orchard.

    he/she needs to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained
    over here.

  2. Best Online Virtual Casinos: 5 Tips That Will Land You for
    the Best Casinos

    Online Casino gaming is slowly transforming into a very popular
    method for a large number for gamblers and leisure
    players alike. There are many sites that offers the best on the web experience.
    The fun in playing emanates from actually wagering
    real money and of course winning actual money. Most online offer 24×7 gaming and customer
    service. However it is always advised to a single and all, if the gamer is a beginner or a pro that they
    must keep abreast with online gambling information from
    news etc, to know which casinos feel at ease
    and which are not.

    Although this would be a slight mismanagement issue in the continuing development of organised gambling,
    gambling and also the concept of casinos were too powerful to become
    quashed. Casinos continued to emerge throughout Europe and with regards to American history, gambling establishments arose in four major cities, Chicago,
    San Francisco, New Orleans and St Louis. It might surprise you that none of the cities
    were the gambling capital on the planet, Las Vegas.
    In fact, it had not been until gambling was outlawed for most of America it was legalized in Las Vegas, Nevada and Reno in 1931.

    Online casinos would not have a single regulatory authority this agreement they answer, due to some extent to the fact
    that they happen in many different jurisdictions.
    However, they are still regulated. Regulatory groups exist
    as gov departments and third-party groups, including the
    e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation Assurance (eCOGRA).
    These groups test sites for safety and fairness, investigate complaints, and
    determine whether or not these are safe for players.

    You should only gamble on websites if you see proof that’s has been approved by this kind of regulatory authority.

    Almost all guides and portals have been partners with
    the online gambling sites they’re reviewing, so whilst they may be comparing several casinos and reviewing them, they’ll have some that they can would rather you’re considering over others, because they have been offered
    a better deal to suggest that you choose a particular online gambling site.

    The ratings, often beyond ten or five stars as an example, are fabricated
    to reflect their preferred choice therefore objectively are completely meaningless.

    The next trick casinos use is making cashing out tougher than it has to be.

    Usually the area which you could cash out is situated far away with to
    walk past many different gaming tables to have there.
    It is very tempting to stop at among the tables and bet just a couple of more
    times along with the casinos, the truth is, are
    relying upon it! Again the only way to avoid this trap will be disciplined instead of bet when you have decided to prevent.

  3. Perhaps you had a fragmented family and never experienced consistency in your early years.

    What will prevent soccer from establishing itself as a
    major force in the USA. in China but there is an ongoing debate over whether
    the first casinos began in Ancient China or the Nile Delta.
