FALLEN FRUIT FACTORY! FRUIT MAGAZINE!
Join us! Fallen Fruit Magazine brings together public participation, local histories and story-telling. Using strategies of collage this temporary team of culture advocates use fruit as a symbol, object and/or subject to create original editorial content to produce in one-day a site-specific limited edition contemporary culture magazine. Each edition is unique and is editorially focused to topics and subject matter that is historically meaningful to the neighborhood and/or region.
We’ll create cut-out collage, hand-made graphics, illustrations for short written text, original artwork, current event commentary all through a lens of local fruit and the agency of public space. The final document becomes an electronic PDF available for download.
(The artworks created during this workshop will be retained by the artists for future exhibitions, and fundraising for The Endless Orchard, the artists’ public tree planting project happening in cities around the world.)
McColl Center is located in a historic neo-Gothic church in Uptown Charlotte, McColl Center for Art + Innovation offers more than 5,000 square feet of Gallery space. We welcome the public to explore our exhibitions and attend our various events, including open studios, community engagement initiatives, workshops and more.
