The Giving Wall
Workshops & Activities
11 AM3 PM
Corner of Fulton and Larkin Streets
The Giving Wall, an
edible microgreens mural by Village Artists-In-Residence FAABI Life Art Group,
will be the central inspiration for all Village Artist Corner activations in
the spring. On first Sundays March through May, stop by the corner to decorate
a canvas bag and then use the bag to harvest microgreens alongside the artists.
Leaders from local community gardens and eateries will demonstrate the seeding,
harvesting and preparing of microgreens and other plant-based foods, sharing
the resulting dishes with the community. FAABI Life Art Group’s aim is to show
the how simple gardening and art-making can be the means of growing a
compassion-based culture. Other surprise multisensory experiences will take
place each first Sunday alongside the mural and food preparation.
FAABI Life Art Group is an
intergenerational family collective based in the Bay Area. Its members include:
Asya Abdrahman and her children Fatima and Ibrahum; N. Masani Landfair; Barakah
Aly; Abdur Rahmn Lee; and Selma, the family’s matriarch. The group focuses on activating public spaces
with regenerative art and engaging the community with collaborative art. It
uses grassroots methods to organize community to unify art, science and
philanthropy and generate civil courage.
the Village Artist Corner
As part of a city
initiative to revive underutilized public spaces with art, performance and
community activities, San Francisco has created several installations through
the Groundplay program. We are honored to share the Village Artist Corner (VAC)
on the corner of Fulton and Larkin streets with the San Francisco Public
Library. The VAC is a platform for creative compassion through installations,
performances, art-making and other events, and includes a 30-foot-long mural
wall that presents a rotating display of site-specific artworks.
