This month on Live Culture 5:

An audioscape and discussion about the 9th Street Community Garden & Park in the East Village, NYC with Artist and Gardener Laurie Olinder.

The East Village is a pioneer in the creation of community-led garden initiatives which unite neighbors in their creation and use. The 9th st garden is one of the most venerable and verdant (it was started in 1979 by Augustine -Nin- Garcia on a large fenced in vacant lot on the corner of 9th Steet and Avenue C ) and has become an important aspect of Laurie Olinder’s artistic practice. Laurie is one of many artists engaged in such community gardens, which often feature sculptures and are home to art classes, school groups and exhibits. Join us as we take a tour of the garden and discuss its history, dynamics and place in the community.

The garden is free and open to the public and is organized, maintained and overseen by volunteers in the area. The East village is unusually rich in such parks, which can be visited and enjoyed by everyone.

As an award winning multimedia designer, painter and photographer, Olinder has presented work in a variety of venues around the world including: BAM, The Barbican, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Walt Disney Concert Hall. More of Laurie’s work can be seen on her website here: www.laurieolinder.com and here: phatory.com
