Uptown Summer 2014 Week 3: Botanical Intervention

Date(s) - Thursday 07/24/2014 - 07/25/2014
2:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a Botanical Intervention at 5 Glen Avenue, with Canadian bio-artist Oliver Kellhammer!

Kellhammer, in collaboration with NATURE Lab Project Coordinator Kathy High, will create a “botanical intervention” in the long devastated toxic soil of the “L-Lot,” at 5 Glen Ave.between 6th Ave. and River Street in North Troy.

One block away from Lock One (Federal Lock) of the Erie Canal, we’ll map the biology, history and current identity of a place, in this creative “Bio-Art in an Industrial Wasteland” workshop. 

As part of an ongoing collaboration, artist Oliver Kellhammer (with Kathy High) will embark on an investigation of Troy’s former industrial lands – areas often referred to as brownfields or ruderal ecologies (from the Latin ‘rudus’ meaning ‘ruin’.)
