Xavier Cortada-- Flower Force: Slippery Rock

Above: Xavier Cortada, "Flower Force: Slippery Rock planting drawing,” charcoal on board, 32” x 40”, 2012.


Cortada's charcoal drawing of a flower will be transformed into 104 living gardens in Pennsylvania: The art work is to be cut into 104 pieces and exhibited at RE:Green, an international juried exhibition hosted by the Martha Gault Art Gallery at Slippery Rock University and juried by Jeff Schmuki.

The artwork will be distributed along with native wildflower seeds to 104 individuals who live in the area near Slippery Rock University. Participants will plant the wildflower seeds at home or in the community, dedicating their garden to someone who has inspired them to live in a more sustainable way. Through a wildflower garden, these 104 individuals will honor those who planted a "green" seed in them and help sustain their community's biodiversity. They will post photos of their garden online at http://www.xaviercortada.com/?page=flowerforce.
