The Grow Show

The Grow Show

Black Rabbit Magic, 2010

The Grow Show paired artists with urban garden programs in several cities across the Pacific Northwest.  Their assignment was to create a unique mobile garden box out of found shopping carts and gift them to teams in other cities.

Teams from Spokane, WA gifted their boxes to teams in Portland, OR; Portland gifted their box to Olympia, WA; and Olympia gifted theirs to Tacoma, WA who gifted their box to Spokane.  In every city, a different kind of reception greeted the delivery of the out-of-town boxes.  Gallery shows, house-parties, lectures and parades became exhibition sites.
