In 2017, South West Roots Artist Catalyst Resident Artists Marie Alarcon, Althea Baird, Ash Richards, Darlene Devore, and Jennifer Turnbull, developed a multidisciplinary project at Bartram’s Gardens with the help of Community Liaison Sophia Poe. The culminating event was a multichannel video installation showcasing Bartram’s Garden’s neighbors and friends as they perform everyday acts of art and movement, highlighting the creative power that has long existed in communities, with a focus on the intimate and personal relationships between place and the communities that interact within it, outside of the involvement of institutions.
