Still Life Harvest Project

Leave a comment

The Working Holiday Still Life Harvest Project was a community based art and food drive installation presented during the Dunbar Village Harvest Festival. Led by artist Elisa Yon, the project invited participation through the donation of non-perishable food items in support of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Over the course of the day, volunteers and community members assisted in recreating a Dutch still life painting by Adiaen van Utrecht, entitled Banquet Still Life, 1644. The harvest scene was composed of food donations, patient dogs, memorabilia, and other borrowed objects from the community.
