This spring, The Plant and local artists/creatives designed a series of collaborative art-making workshops for the community to engage in creative artistic dialogue around the theme, Waging Peace, as it relates to Tallahassee.  These workshops are part of a community-wide project orchestrated by The FSU Museum of Fine Arts and the May 2018 exhibition called Waging Peace!  that worked with teachers in the Leon County, City Hall, and the Anderson Brickler Gallery.  Waging Peace involves active engagement and energy expended toward the goal of peace. The intent is to challenge people to strive towards a balanced culture and environment through art actions.

The Plant and the collective of waging peace artists invite the community to the opening reception Friday, May 11, 2018, at The Plant from 7pm-9pm.  The exhibition will be up thru May 30.

The participating collective of artists that facilitated the workshops are:

Jennifer Haskins, Paul Rutkovsky, Lindsey Bailey, Sarah Tso, Perdita Ross, Hayley Munn, Jenn Egelfeld, Rei Myers, Glenn Swan, and Jennifer Hamrock

The Plant, at 517 W. Gaines Street, is an inclusive creative and safe D.I.Y. community space where everyone is welcomed and empowered to organize, research and encourage the free expression of others.  The Plant is solely operated by volunteers and donations, valuing engagement, education, and empowerment. The Plant is an organic space that grows with the community by bringing together diverse groups, demographics, and ideas together around creative expression.

This exhibit is free and part of a larger, voluntary, community project.   All those involved in Waging Peace at the Plant are donating their time, ideas, resources, and materials.  As such,  The Plant and the participating artists invite donations.  For questions about donating, please contact Jennifer Hamrock at theplant.tally@gmail.com
