September 16, 2005 - Friday Nights @ Not A Cornfield
Not A Cornfield artist Lauren Bon was joined by eastside gallerists Jenna Didier and Janet Owen and Johanna Blakley of USC's Norman Lear Center for a well-attended Salon titled,
"Agri(c)ulture: What's Growing in LA?"
The quartet discussed a wide range of issues, including public space and the Grand Avenue project; sustainability; the definition of contemporary entertainment; and the vibrancy of Los Angeles' "feral institutions" to borrow the words of salon attendee Margaret Wertheim. Also, FoLAR's Lewis MacAdams announced that a Friends of the Cornfield group is being planned; and State Parks representative Sean Woods said a few words about the Los Angeles State Historic Park, which hosts the Not A Cornfield art project.
