Help create a living walking gallery of community creating. Art in a space that was created as an Art project itself. Bring your pieces, built of natural elements, paper, fabric or what calls to you to the PLOT Sharing Garden. (We ask that creations be made of environmentally friendly materials.) Sculpt, paint, carve, fasten. Sing, dance, make music. Lets celebrate July 1 with diversity; what it means to live on this land through our art. Leave your creation for a few days OR FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON FOR ALL visitors to ENJOY!
Please email us to arrange a time during the last week of June to bring your art piece to The PLOT. The last day for submission is July 1, 2020. We ask that it does not include any valuable items as The PLOT is an open public space and does not have security.
Mishmash Bash is our biggest event of the year at the PLOT sharing garden! Last year, this event brought together artists, musicians and crafters to celebrate the end of the growing season. We created a webpage capturing the essence of this event, you can check it out here. It was great to see our community come together and we want to continue the celebration this year regardless of the current situation. We are hosting a ‘Virtual’ Mishmash Bash this year and you are invited! We would love to have you come join the party. Let’s continue to come together and build community!
In response to COVID-19, the PLOT is continuing to grow food for our communities while following social distancing guidelines. We also started a new initiative called ‘PLOT Care Baskets’ where we aim to provide weekly fresh produce to those most impacted by this pandemic. This event is also a fundraiser to support this initiative. At the PLOT, we are not just growing food, but are also growing communities, and we do this by hosting a variety of programming to celebrate and bring everyone together.
Here are some details to help you plan:
This event will take place on Saturday, May 23rd from 3pm-5pm
