Portable Park at Santa Monica Place

Aug 23, 2013
Graduate Public Practice
Spotlight Category: College

Working with curator Karen Moss and artist Bonnie Ora Sherk, Public Practice graduate students re-imagined what a “portable park” is today, more than forty years after Sherk's urban installations. Their Portable Parks project included Sherk’s California Native Zones, mini-gardens of drought-tolerant plants and The Flower Unfolding, a monumental-scale, organic edible landscape of fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. The project was part of the Getty's Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980 Performance and Public Art Festival.
