Family Day at MOCA!
September 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
MoCA Westport and the Westport Farmers’ Market (WFM) announce a new collaboration that will culminate in an exhibition entitled Between the Ground and the Sky on view August 27 – September 18, 2021.
Family Day featuring a range of farm-related activities will be held on Saturday, September 11 from 12 – 4 p.m. Explore the exhibition, enjoy delicious offerings from the Parlor, Bees Knees, and On The Fly food trucks, and listen to multi-instrumentalist Henry Jones. Tickets will be available for purchase on the MoCA Westport website (mocawestport.org) and the WFM website (westportfarmersmarket.com) as of August 1 for $10 per adult and $5 per child.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is more than 50 large-scale photographs, both color and black and white, of local farms by Anne Burmeister and Ashley Skatoff, two local accomplished photographers. The photographs tell a compelling and visually arresting story of the importance of local farms and farmers. The Who Grows Your Food initiative was developed by the Westport Farmers’ Market during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic as a means to educate people on the role that local farmers play in providing food for the community.
