An Art Installation about Food and Motherhood
Eagle Heights Community Gardens, Madison, WI
July 31st-August 20th

Greetings From Motherland is an evolving community art project that gathers women together to make art about becoming a mother through workshops, participatory events, and a web site. During July, we worked as a group in the Eagle Heights Community in a series of six workshops called First Foods. The final site-specific installation, Good Eater, weaves together our stories with cyanotypes (a type of photographic printmaking) that we made using our bodies and food from our homes and the Eagle Heights Community Gardens. Join us at the opening and contribute your story as well.
