Propeller Awardees to Participate in Of Other Chicagos Salon Series
Published Thursday 03 of May, 2012
Rooted: Food and Farming Initiatives as Regional Artworks
Tuesday, May 8th, 7-9pm
Participants: Martha Bayne, Fallen Fruit, Eric May, Andi Sutton, and Fereshteh Toosi
To conclude the Of Other Chicagos salon series, we will examine ways that innovative agricultural and culinary projects assert new understandings of spaces, ideals, tools, and relationships. Food is a common language with which we can talk about topics such as sustainability, local economies, nutrition, and access, with many different types of people. These creative initiatives are about the pleasures of food, understanding diverse histories of cuisine, and bringing people together around a table to discuss the issues that are important to their lives in Chicago and elsewhere.
