May 11th, 2018: Griska

Jordan Griska is an artist. He makes art that’s different… very different… like this one.



A Navy submarine bomber, the S2F then fought fires in California, and then went to a junkyard in Alabama where it was torn apart
and stripped of all valuable parts.
It was put up for sale on e-bay, with the owner declaring this was it’s last chance for sale before being scrapped. Griska was the only bidder.



The nose of the plane and the cargo doors in its belly open to reveal a growing gift to the community.
Food grown here is being harvested for low-income families by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. 

Methinks it more symbolic that fruitful, but it's the thought that counts.



It fits into the allowed space and continues the theme of futuristic retrofitting of objects that Griska is so well known for.

This URL shows that I'm at that page of the gallery, but no image, just blank white. IE 11, Firefox, and Chrome.

That URL gives me a page with two pictures, one is four boxes and the second a single box.
