For those of you who didn't make Sunday's Earth Day celebration, there's still a chance this week to mingle with the green at heart. This Thursday evening, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts will host "Food, Art, and Community," its final panel discussion in a series fired by its current exhibition Urban Alchemy/Gordon Matta-Clark. Gordon Matta-Clark and fellow artists ran a restaurant called "Food" in 1970s SoHo, which turned cooking into performance art and provided a common space for the neighborhood to cultivate creative ventures. This week's panelists will talk about how art can work together with sustainable produce, urban farming and farmers' markets to foster community and urban renewal. You can RSVP to this event on Facebook.
