Project EATS to run a farm stand in front of Brooklyn Museum Thursdays
As part of Crossing Brooklyn, Project EATS will create several gardens on the grounds of the Brooklyn Museum in which food will be grown and eventually included in the offerings of the farm stand in front.
BROOKLYN, NY.- Fresh produce will be sold from a farm stand in front of the Brooklyn Museum's glass front entrance beginning Thursday, July 17 from 3:30 p.m. until 9 p.m., and continuing every Thursday through the summer and fall. Project EATS will sell produce grown on their community farms in several New York neighborhoods, including Brownsville and East New York in Brooklyn. The farm stand is a precursor to Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond, an exhibition of more than 100 works of art by 35 artists and collectives who live and/or work in Brooklyn. It will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum from October 3, 2014 through January 4, 2015.

As part of Crossing Brooklyn, Project EATS will create several gardens on the grounds of the Brooklyn Museum in which food will be grown and eventually included in the offerings of the farm stand in front.

Project EATS is a program of the Active Citizen Project, which works to create 'accessible rarity' - taking what is exclusive to some and making it accessible to all - and promotes new modes of public thought and social action. It was formed by artist and Peabody award-winning documentary filmmaker Linda Goode Bryant to create neighborhood-based farm operations in urban areas. Their goal is to produce forms of art that introduce new possibilities in to the life of these communities and to document and present these projects in public spaces where they can be engaged by a larger public.

Crossing Brooklyn has been organized by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, and Rujeko Hockley, Assistant Curator, Contemporary Art.
