Green Acres: Artists Farming Fields, Greenhouses and Abandoned Lots

Location:  Cincinnati, OH
United States
Project Description: 

Green Acres: Artists Farming Fields, Greenhouses, and Abandoned Lots explored artist’s creative use of farming practices to inspire self-reliance, improve food quality, demonstrate sustainable farming techniques, engender community actions, and foster local identities. Curated by Sue Spaid and featuring works by over 24 American artists, the exhibit was followed by a book that discusses related projects by nearly 240 international artists and architects. Satellite projects directed and organized by artists and community organizations included urban farms throughout Cincinnati, often in formerly abandoned lots.
