This project is a part of Art in Odd Places 2015:
Free demonstration and consultation on growing orchids
at the Union Square Greenmarket will be given by artist
Skowmon Hastanan. She will be working alongside
flower vendors, and setting up an information table
with orchid care information and reference books.
Growing orchids has been Skowmon's passion for the
past 30 years. She occasionally accepts and rescues
unwanted orchids; at times there are between eighty
to one hundred plants in her home. This personal
pursuit is a continuation of her “Homesick” art series,
a nostalgic reminder of her tropical home in Thailand.
You are invited to bring your orchid for troubleshooting.
