Seeds of Wisdom. Seeds of Hope. Seeds of Justice.
ArtBuilt Mobile Studio In The Park presents TIMESEED with artist-in-residence Gan Golan! From August 15 – September 30, 2019 in Thomas Greene Park in Gowanus, Brooklyn Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays @ 12-4pm
“Timeseed” is an intergenerational public art project that invites residents to gather community stories and share visions for a just future, and send them through time to coming generations. What do you want to share with The Future?
Timeseed will feature an exhibit of seeds from all over the world, art builds for the Climate Strike, artmaking activities, and neighborhood storytelling. Together with community members, we will create our own "seeds of wisdom" and "seeds of hope" with some of Gowanus' oldest and youngest residents while listening to the stories they bring with them and their vision for the world they are fighting for. These stories will be combined into 3-Dimensional seed sculptures we create together. At the end of the project, the seeds containing our stories will be dispersed into the community as historical archives.
ArtBuilt Mobile Studio in the Park is in partnership with ArtBuilt, Queens Museum, NYC Parks, Gowanus Canal Conservancy, Arts Gowanus, Friends of Thomas Greene Park, Textile Arts, Arts & Democracy, and NOCD-NY. This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, The New York Community Trust and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
