FLOR500 at Florida Library Association Conference
April 18, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Xavier Cortada, “FLOR500: Florida Library Association planting drawing,” 80 drawings (charcoal on board) and Florida native wildflower seeds inside plastic bags on wall, 2012.
Xavier Cortada’s charcoal wildflower drawing will be transformed into 80 living wildflower gardens across Florida: The art work was cut into 80 pieces to be distributed along with seeds (from the Florida Wildflower Foundation) to 80 attendees of the Florida Library Association Conference on April 18th, 2012 in Orlando, Florida. Participants will plant the wildflower seeds at home, dedicating their garden to a Floridian they admire. They will post photos of their garden at www.flor500.com.
The work is presented by the FIU | College of Architecture + The Arts | Office of Engaged Creativity where Cortada serves as Artist-in-Residence. To learn more and see video, please visit http://news.fiu.edu/2012/04/participatory-art-project-to-celebrate-floridas-500th-anniversary/38367
