Planting Feet Growing Community

HortiSculpture is an interdisciplinary project that combines art and gardening to expand personal and public awareness of art, community action, and environmental issues. We reproduce human feet in clay through a process called press-molding; once made, the feet are “planted” with flowers and vegetables, thereby transforming unused land into a large scale art installation and – eventually – a sustainable garden.
HortiSculpture is doing an installation at Pinewoods Estates on April 19th from 4-6pm; we are working in conjunction with Athens Land Trust to plant a children’s garden for the kids living at Pinewoods Estates. Kids aged 8-12 years will paint unfired clay feet with an earth-friendly liquid clay, then we will plant our feet together! We are looking for volunteers to help out – any and all are welcome.
HortiSculpture is supported in part by an ICE Project Grant.
