The Boulder JCC Milk & Honey Farm to Showcase Gravity Fed Art Installation

In a remarkable celebration of nature’s forces and artistic expression, the Milk & Honey Farm at the Boulder JCC and Futurefarmers will host a captivating, performative art procession, Gravity Fed. This exhibition will be created from five talented artists: Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, artist, (Oakland, CA), Camille Dungy, poet, (Fort Collins, CO), Sanam Emami & Del Harrow, artists, (Fort Collins, CO) and Oscar VanGeertruyden, artist, (Belgium). 

The Milk & Honey Farm collects its water from the pristine waters that flow downstream from the heights of the continental divide, situated 6,548 feet above Boulder. Inspired by the power of gravity, which aids the water’s journey to the farm, Futurefarmers invited these artists to collaborate and explore this natural phenomenon.

The community is welcome on June 11, 2023 from 10 am – 1 pm at the Boulder JCC Milk & Honey Farm to take part in Gravity Fed. A series of small mobile stages will carry these sculptures and process from the waters of the creek to Milk & Honey Farm, unfolding a series of performative activations of the made sculptures. The wheelbarrows will remain at Milk and Honey Farm during the 2023 summer for community viewing. 

Milk & Honey Farm stands as a testament to the harmonious coexistence of art and nature, where the power of gravity converges with artistic expression to create an enchanting and thought-provoking experience. The farm invites all art enthusiasts, nature lovers, and curious minds to witness these gravity-fed installations firsthand and discover the profound connection between art and the natural world.

We think of two words: Gravity and Fed.
Gravity gives weight to physical objects.
We cannot see gravity,
only the things moved by gravity.
Gravity has no color,
no sound and no meaning
except when two or more matter(s)
come together and connect.”
