Motherpatch is the largest public watermelon patch in the world, containing over 30 global varieties of watermelons. The project is Fallen Fruit’s collaboration with the CCA and the people of Sumter County that began in 2012, and has unfolded through ongoing conversation, creation and collaboration.
This event is made possible by funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The Visual Artists Network/National Performance Network, ArtPlace America, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Daniel Foundation of Alabama and the generous contributions of our individual sponsors.
