Art in Park Slope: Farm City and G Train Salon

On Sunday I explored the art scene in Park Slope, Brooklyn with Krista Saunders as my trusty guide.

Krista curates the G Train Salon and has a show running at Urban Alchemist, a design co-op located on 5th Street off of 5th Avenue.

After checking out Jae Hi Ahn's exhibit at Urban Alchemist we ran into 'social sculpture' artist Tattfoo Tan at the Old Stone House.

@LeslieTravel checking out Kim Holleman's "Trailer Park" at Park Slope's Old Stone House.
Tattfoo was in Park Slope to demonstrate his SOS mobile classroom at the "Brooklyn Utopia: Farm City" show.

Farm City included two amazing mobile gardens, one created from a silver bullet trailer ("Trailer Park") and another fashioned from a pick-up truck ("Farm Truck").
