Luncheon in the Garden: Food Justice
As a part of Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light, artist Jennifer Wen Ma has conceived of a series of Luncheons in the Garden in which the public will be invited to be a part of conversations dealing with themes of the exhibition. On July 6, bring a bag lunch and break bread with other members of the community in the Halsey Institute galleries. Each Luncheon in the Garden will also feature a collaborative performance by musician, dancer, or poet relating to the theme. For this Luncheon, the artist will be discussing issues of food justice facing the Lowcountry. Under the fruit-laden vines of the Gardens, this paradise is a perfect place to partake in food and drink while discussing food quality, nutritional value, safety, availability, and access.
