As we near the opening of our summer exhibition, Around the Table: Stories of the Foods We Love, we’re thrilled to reveal the exhibition’s new artwork by Bronx muralist Andre Trenier.
At the center of Trenier’s work, seen here, is a painted table representing the 30 picnic tables that’ll be placed across our 250 acres this summer, each one uniquely designed by local Bronx artists in celebration of the cultural and historical significance of crops and plant-based food traditions. This week we welcomed the artists to their new studio space at the Garden—and they wasted no time in diving into their projects!
Get a sneak peek of our visiting artists’ first day of work in this video, and stay tuned as the artists share their progress leading up to the June 4 launch of this exciting exhibition.
