Artist Reception: Jodi Kushins "In the Footsteps of a Farmer: Fleeting Beauty"

  • Global Gallery 3535 N. High Street Columbus, OH 43214 US (map)


"As urban farmer and educator, I’m interested in the power of art to inspire individuals to reflect on their lives and imagine new possibilities. The past five years I have been capturing and sharing moments of fleeting beauty I witness at Over the Fence Urban Farm, a long-range project that combines creative placemaking and sustainable living
Growing food can be a beautiful thing, both as a process and a product. A craft once passed from generation to generation, viewed through the lenses of climate change and agricultural engineering, one might consider backyard edible gardening a dying art form worthy of cultural heritage preservation. Through this exhibition and my ongoing work on the farm, I hope to encourage viewers to reconsider economist E. F. Schumacher's theory that "small is beautiful" when it comes to growing food and communities." -Jodi Kushins
