Ongoing Fall Public Art Project: The Green Bomb Project
Pocket Utopia is pleased to present its first fall public art project by Megan Whiteford, the Green Bomb Project, with organizational assistance by Audra Wolowiec. The Green Bomb Project is an attempt to bring native species (columbine flowers) back to Brooklyn through guerrilla gardening. The idea is for the public to pick up a 'bomb' at Pocket Utopia, located at 1037 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn. They will then drop the 'bomb' in any desired location: preferably someplace partially sunny to sunny in an area. There will be a map at the gallery for guerilla gardeners to pinpoint the location of their plants. Gardeners are highly encouraged to take photos and post it to http://greenbombs.livejournal
.com/. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Planting!Pocket Utopia is an away-from center, off-center, exhibition, salon and social space run by artist Austin Thomas.
