Beautiful Possibility Elixir Social at the West Side Market
With Alison Pebworth and Local Farmers
Saturday, June 23, 2012, 8:00AM - 4:00PM
On Saturday, June 23, join SPACES's artist in resident Alison Pebworth and Cleveland farmers at the West Side Market for an all-day Elixir Social.
This June, Pebworth has been in town with her traveling cross-country art exhibition, Beautiful Possibility http://www.beautifulpossibilitytour.com. Inspired by the 19th century American Traveling Show, Pebworth's hand-painted posters use the elaborate graphics of Wild West show posters to re-tell American history.
At stops across the country, Pebworth has been surveying people on their thoughts about "Americanitis," a curious 19th century nervous condition resulting from rapid modernization. While in Cleveland, Pebworth has partnered with urban farmers to make an array of special "Cleveland Elixirs" for Americanitis, which you can sample all day at the West Side Market.
Sponsored by SPACES, in partnership with City Rising Farm, Erie's Edge Farm, Gather 'Round Farm, Let It Bee Gardens, the Possibilitarian Garden and the West Side Market.
