          • Seed Bomb

            The event began at Botanica, on Eco-Art Day, Saturday April 26, 2014, where participants could make their own seed bombs.  It was a kids-of-all-ages event:  the plan was to get your hands dirty and create the palette that you’ll use the following day to ‘paint’ a green corridor through the Commerce Street Art District.  Internationally-acclaimed earthworks artist, Kansan Stan Herd, was on hand to talk about his practice and show examples of existing plant-paintings.  In addition, local Landscape Architect Teri Farha imparted some valuable information about native and adaptive plants, as well as how to maintain them throughout the summer.  Kids made a seed bomb for Commerce Street, and one for their own neighborhood--plant-painting works anywhere! The next day, April 27, everyone headed down to the Commerce Street Art District, to bomb the street green.  And, to enjoy the street party:  there was music by Carson Mac and The Czech Republicans, BBQ from the Rip’s Rib Shak food truck, activities at Fisch Haus, the Ffarquhar and the Non-Toxic Beauty Shop, a rain barrel display by Wichita Rain Barrels, and lots more! Sunday night, Fisch Haus hosted a special talk by Stan Herd, in collaboration with Creative Rush’s School of Street Smarts, entitled GET NOTICED. The discussion and workshop focused on artist self-promotion:  Stan has spent many years honing this crucial, yet complex, skill, and generously agreed to share his experiences with the Wichita art and small business community.   We were also excited to introduce Cow and Sow Deli, a new farm-to-table delicatessen on Douglas Ave.  They brought a pop-up shop to Fisch Haus on Sunday, providing snacks for the street party visitors and SoSS audience. Special thanks to Emprise Bank and the Wichita Arts Council, for sponsoring this event, Botanica for co-hosting, Johnson's Garden Centers for donating the seeds, and F5 for helping to promote it!
