UEA Closeout Exhibition Community Offerings
Please join us for the Closing Reception of the Urban Ecology Artist program with free and open to the public community offerings by Pedal Miranda, Milo Whitson, and Adrienne Dixon!
During this reception celebration, artists Pedal Miranda, Milo Whitson, and Adrienne Dixon will be offering events in tandem with the work they created for the UEA program exhibition. These events include turning plastic bags into workable fiber, creating a collaborative poem inspired by the garden, and planting fall seeds with intention and reused materials.
5:30pm : Braiding Bags: Connectivity for the Long Apocalypse with Pedal Miranda – During this session multimedia boricua mad artist Pedal Miranda will offer a workshop turning bags into workable fiber, as is already practiced all over the planet! This offering correlates to the weaving installation: Time Not Braid on view (8/12/23-9/6/23), which Pedal will activate with a short performance as the workshop begins.please bring plastic shopping bags, scissors, and something comfortable to sit on
6:00pm : Garden Poetry Walk with Milo Whitson – Together we will explore the garden and engage all of our senses, gathering observations to weave into a poem. Participants have the option of reciting their poem to be digitally recorded and arranged into a sound piece of garden sounds and voices.
6:30pm : Fall Planting with Intention with Adrienne Dixon – Focusing on adaptive reuse I will create pots using scraps of building materials. Participants will have the opportunity to pot fall seasonal plant seeds, along with slips of newsprint where they can write their intentions for the season.
Parking is available in our Green Learning Station parking lot, located at the corner of Oak Street and Reading Road. You can also park within Hauck Botanic Garden, either along June Street (which runs through the park) or on one of the paved parking pads.
