Maryann Worrell & Doug Mott's Crisis Farm: Seed to Table outdoor installation - the other day in the rain, and a 'before' shot... taken at our opening and seed planting day 2.5 weeks ago.
Street Road has christened the 3 buildings on site with new names - the Bird House, Mouse House, and Cat House - in honor of each one's respective squatter community. From the Cat House yesterday --
One stupendously cold day last winter I opened the door on the ground floor of this building and found myself looking at a big white cat half asleep on a box of old files.
So obviously, this building has been renamed The Cat House.
Our small squeaky friends from the neighboring field like to use our office as their party palace when the snows arrive, so this one is renamed The Mouse House.
Tom Savage is our hero - not only did he build Street Road Building Number 1, and the whole Sailing Stones exhibition - he even went up on a ladder DURING the exhibition opening to give the mother bird access to the nest and her babies behind the photo we installed.
Truly - above and beyond.
Some rough wood and white paint and picture frames showing life at Street Road. It's somewhere for anyone to sit and think and read a book from the library.
We're still working on the plan to keep the library open every day, but this is the start of the Street Road Free Library.
Regular posts from Street Road - check for updates on our shows, our friendly but slightly menacing groundhogs, bees from nearby Stella Lou Farm, and our growing collection of river rocks altered by the artistically inclined from all over the world.
