Back in July, artists Rob Fischer and Kevin Johnson got acquainted with community members in the Woodlawn neighborahood of Moorhead and listened to their input for a future public art project – a Defiant Garden – at the Moorhead Power Plant site.

Fischer and Johnson will return with proposed ideas to implement at the site and would appreciate your involvement, opinions and ideas. Community members, neighbors and gardening enthusiasts are urged to attend and all members of the public are welcome.

Defiant Gardens is an ongoing project working with artists, landscape historians, landscape architects, writers, curators, and city planners to develop public art projects that inspire the community.

The project at the Moorhead Power Plant is supported by a generous grant from the Lake Region Arts Council with contributions from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
