City of Plenty
1 - 21 March 2015Artist Sarah Goffman constructs a city made from non-perishable food and household consumables in our Main Gallery in an exhibition with a social conscious.
Feed your city.
The City of Plenty was an evolving art installation with a social conscience. Artist Sarah Goffman constructed a city made from donated non-perishable food and household consumables in our Main Gallery.
We sought donations our community to help feed the city. Deposit boxes were located at the Penrith Regional Gallery, Penrith City Library, The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre and Penrith PCYC.
At the conclusion of the project, the city was dismantled and the goods were donated to those in need through our project partners, Ozharvest and Penrith Community Kitchen.
A Benefit Dinner to help support the good work of Ozharvest and partner agency Penrith Community Kitchen, Visual Arts Teacher Development Day focussing on social engagement and responsibility and student run blog by Caroline Chisholm College were elements of social engagement within this project.
City of Plenty exhibition, fundraiser dinner, education and public programming were presented by Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.
