Fallen Fruit Presents EATLACMA

EATLACMA is a year-long investigation into food, art, culture and politics. Fusing the richness of LACMA's permanent collection with the ephemerality of food and the natural growth cycle, EATLACMA's projects consider food as a common ground that explores the social role of art and ritual in community and human relationships.  EATLACMA unfolds seasonally, with artist's gardens planted and harvested on the museum campus, hands-on public events, and a concurrent exhibition, Fallen Fruit Presents The Fruit of LACMA (June 27-November 7, 2010).

Event Time: 
06/27/2010 - 5:00pm

Arlington Gardens Five Year Anniversary

One of our favorite projects, and possibly the best local, public garden, Arlington Garden is celebrating it's Fifth Year Anniversary, Saturday, May 8, 2010. You can purchase a jar of 2010 Washington Navel Sweet Orange Marmalade, from oranges grown at the Garden. South Pasadena Girl Scouts helped Betty & Charles McKinney pick 200 lbs. of "just ripe" oranges, and E. Waldo Ward in Sierra Madre converted that into jars of golden spread for your morning toast.  We are looking forward to finishing the trellis over the amphitheater, please donate to the non-profit.  Thanks to the community support!
