About the Idea Garden
Over the course of four Saturdays in the summer of 2015, Guelph artist Meredith Blackmore invited community members to contribute to a collaborative work of art outside of the Farmers’ Market as part of the City of Guelph’s RBC Market Mornings program. The project entitled, “Idea Garden,” asked community members to paint, “something that holds something that grows.” Once the pots, planters, nests and baskets were mapped out, participants had the chance to paint something growing out of these spaces.
