This year I am happy to once again be working with the Street Art Fair on a community art project which will happen at the Townie Street Party on July 19. This year's project is Invader/Invasive - a community art/mapping/journaling project about the effect of invasive species on our local ecosystem. The piece will include mapping with some GIS layers, drawings, and people written expressions about the invaders - those can be poetic, lists, journals - whatever seems to work. I need your help to make this happen. Specifically I'm soliciting your images of invasive species in your yards or in public spaces you feel connected to. Please send these images and your coordinates - that is, the address where the photo was taken to:
jpegs are fine. Please put "invader" in the subject line of your email. I'm looking for images of the obvious - purple loosestrife, emerald ash borer, garlic mustard, zebra mussels etc - and the non-obvious. Please do include a little information in your emails about what/where and anything else that seems pertinent. and thanks!
