Opening Reception: Love Letters to the Earth

Opening Reception: Love Letters to the Earth

6 p.m. - Welcoming remarks with artists, farmers, and curators

 

"Love Letters to the Earth/ Cartas de Amor a La Tierra" is a multi-media exhibition exploring our reciprocal relationship with the Earth and each other during this time of profound ecological change, developed by the Arbor Institute’s Arbor Art Collective.

 

The installation includes collage, photography, poetry, cyanotype printing, and sound recordings created through the Artist in the Garden project — a collaboration pairing BIPOC and women artists and farmers who are creating food justice, food sovereignty, and climate-resilient food systems on the Colorado Front Range.

The artworks express their experiences with the land and communities that the farmers honor and steward through their work. The installation provides an opportunity to learn more about how you can support the voices, missions and movement of Black and Brown growers in Colorado. The Artist in the Garden project was curated in partnership with Franklin Cruz poet, dancer, culture worker, and program manager with Montbello Organizing Committee.
