Thursday, April 6 at 4 pm. Artist Talk! –CULTIVATING COMMUNITY WITH FALLEN FRUIT
Artists David Allen Burns and Austin Young, the collaborative duo behind the artworks of Fallen Fruit, present a survey of projects that explore material, meaning, and geographical knowledge. Currently they are installing a community garden at the Nevada Museum of Art called “Monument to Sharing.” The artists consider “the public realm” as their primary artistic medium, and the artworks of Fallen Fruit investigates collaborative communities and the boundaries of public spaces through mapping fruit trees in urban areas and interrogating historical public archives. Fallen Fruit has exhibited internationally, including notable projects for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, National Gallery Victoria in Melbourne, Chiostro del Bramante in Rome, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, amongst others. Join us in a conversation with the artists as we explore ways in which the community can inform ideas of place and a sense of connectedness in our capacity to share the world with others.

Saturday April 8- Lemonade stand!
“Lemonade Stand”, a public participatory artwork by Fallen Fruit explores ideas of temporary community and new forms of public. In exchange for a cold glass of organic lemonade, participants are asked to create self-portraits using black ink markers on lemons and to share stories of sadness and disappointment, or happiness and positive self-reflection.
The lemon self-portraits will collectively form a group portrait of everyone who participated, illustrating some of the archetypes that construct community. Additionally, as participants are asked to record stories about neighborhood and family, the Lemonade Stand will activate the phrase… “when life gives you lemons…”
