2012 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Syd’s project focuses on African American farms and gardens. When considering gardening and farming in America, few images of African Americans come to mind despite the fact that in the early part of the 20th century there were more than 1,000,000 farms operated by African Americans, most located in southern states. That number has been reduced to less than 40,000 today.  Syd will create a series of emblematic ceramic farms and gardens locating them in the landscape on the campus of Swarthmore College.
