Odyssey Gallery in Asheville, NC, Features Photo Documentary of Garden Project by Grant Millin
The Odyssey Gallery in Asheville, NC, is presenting the exhibition,The West End/Clingman Avenue Art + Garden Project, a photographic exhibition by Grant Millin, on view from Mar. 6 - 20, 2003.
The exhibit of photographs by Millin documents a grassroots neighborhood gardening and public art project in the West End/Clingman Avenue Neighborhood of Asheville.
The photographs record the creation of eight neighborhood gardens and three public art installations: a kinetic wind sculpture by artist Julia Burr, a signature neighborhood tile by Diana Gillispie, and a steel sculptural bench for a neighborhood bus shelter by artist John Payne. The gardens were designed and installed by residents with assistance from neighbors and Extension Master Gardeners of Buncombe County. The project builds on and celebrates the neighborhood's rich gardening heritage as well as the emerging arts industry in Asheville's River Warehouse District.
Mountain Housing Opportunities coordinated the project in partnership with the West End/Clingman Avenue Neighborhood Association, Highwater Clays and Odyssey Center for the Ceramic Arts. The project was made possible through support from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, the City of Asheville, and the Steelcase Foundation.
