Join us on Saturday, May 12, 2018 as Fallen Fruit Magazine brings together our community to share and record our stories.
We’ll create cut-out collages, hand-made graphics, and illustrations for short written text. We welcome original artwork and current event commentary all through the lens of personal and local history! The final document becomes an electronic PDF available for download. Uncle Bacon (Bob Hurton) and Inlandia Poet Laureate, Nikia Chaney, will be working with artist collective Fallen Fruit to help facilitate this process. Be a part of this unique magazine that celebrates who we are!
This free workshop will take place in the lobby of the Feldheym Central Library, 555 W. 6th Street from 1:00 – 3:00 PM on Saturday, May 12, 2018.
Fallen Fruit San Bernardino was made possible by grant funding from the California Arts Council, the San Bernardino Fine Arts Commission, and SoCalGas
Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work. Fallen Fruit began by mapping fruit trees growing on or over public property in Los Angeles. The collaboration has expanded to include serialized public projects and site-specific installations and happenings in various cities around the world, and will now include San Bernardino! By always working with fruit as a material or media, the catalogue of projects and works reimagine public interactions with the margins of urban space, systems of community, and narrative real-time experience. Fallen Fruit’s visual work includes an ongoing series of narrative photographs, wallpapers, everyday objects, and video works that explore the social and political implications of our relationship to fruit and the world around us.
