Dominique Moody: Our Garden of Dreams

Seminal and visionary artist, Dominique Moody is the Artist-in-Residence for the fall of 2018 at Side Street Projects! As part of the residency, Dominique will create a mobile community garden called, Our Garden of Dreams, “to create a space where something can grow is magical. And to nurture that environment is the most essential form of appreciation of the aesthetic world. With care our garden of dreams will grow, and along with that a creative spirit.”

This project is rooted in assemblage sculpture and utilizes all mediums including those that are ethereal and temporal that include elements like water, wind, and light. The community will play an integral role in completing the mobile garden. The project invites the community to reflect on our history and creatively imagine our future dreams together, and watch them grow.  Dominique will lead 6 workshops for families and neighbors that will focus on themes in Our Garden of Dreams project, including teaching new skills that include gardening, assemblage making, and repurposing objects.

We need your help! Please donate old windows, empty bottles, rusty hinges and other knick-knacks. The windows used in the structure of the garden will be adorned with dreams, drawings, and poems from workshop attendees and off-site community partnerships affiliated with the project.
