Arts & Entertainment, Feature, North Park | Exhibit imagines urban landscape as a place to grow fresh, local food
By Monica Garske | SDUN Reporter
Imagine strolling through the bustling streets, alleys and parking lots of North Park. Now, imagine that same urban setting covered in orchards, fruit trees and vegetable gardens ripe for the picking that produce fresh food for your consumption.
That’s the basic idea behind “Eat Here Now,” the latest exhibit at the Art Produce Gallery at 3139 University Ave. in North Park.
The exhibit – which kicks off April 14 with an opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. – is truly a collaborative effort. It’s spearheaded by curator Leslie Ryan, chair of the Architecture Landscape Department at NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD), and features graphic designs and artwork by various NSAD students and professors. The exhibit runs through May 15.
