The Art of Farming

September 18, 2010 § Leave a comment

On September 23, 2010, Sotheby’s New York will host the inaugural Tri-State Heirloom Vegetable auction, The Art of Farming.  This auction event will celebrate edible heirlooms and the art involved in their creation.

“Interest in sustainable and local food practices continues to spread among creative types and appears to be gaining momentum. More and more, artists are learning hands-on farming techniques and cultivating their own crops, while artspaces are starting to play host to farmers markets, composting workshops, gardening roundtables, and food residencies. ”

Nicole Caruth’s article Gastro-Vision: Eating Your Vegetables Is a Luxury in an intersesting response to this event.
