It Takes A Community

Make no mistake, the Art Farm is not limited to the briary brickwork of its Harlem homestaed.  We like to plant creative crops wherever the wind blows.

Two weeks ago we rode the rails to Oyster Bay, L.I. to the little artistic village of Sea Cliff.  A farm doesn't just build itself, no sir!  It takes a community.  Therefore, a great big Thank You goes out to Marilyn Pedalino who generously opened up her home, the former Harold Stevenson Academy.  The old painting classroom, sitting in quiet neglect, yearned to be useful once more.  And useful it was!  A healthy dose of creative care and enthusiasm brought it back to life!  We scrubbed, patched, painted, hung & lit a little Art Farm to be proud of.

Thank You to Honorary Farmers Marilyn, Marc and Marilee whose sturdy support made this event possible!
