In our ever-changing city, community garden’s still dot the landscape as a growing-place, gathering place, green space for individual neighborhoods. The art installation, Transformation-Integration: Re-Material Wall by artist Leander Knust addresses the recent tsunami of change and displacement throughout our city.
With change viewed as an inevitable part of city life, the artist describes his newly installed art piece which incorporates the garden’s plants and animal life, along with reclaimed construction material.
The West 111th Street People’s Garden invite the public to an afternoon of art, music, and community engagement on this topic to be held on Saturday, May 18th from 2-4pm. This is a free event.
You might remember the Re-Material Wall from its 2018 installation in Socrates Sculpture Garden. The artist, Leander Mienardus Knust lives and works in New York City.
The West 111th Street People’s Garden is located on the north-west corner of 111th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, across the street from the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
