Melissa Smedley Shows “Perishables,” an Installation, through December 5, 2017 at Open Ground Studios
Perishables is a visual meditation on (the) “Lettuce Curtain” and other facets of the agricultural tapestry of the Salinas Valley. In this era of vigorous debate over our country’s lack of clear policies on immigration and severe climate factors, many of us are actively wondering, “what is the true cost of our food in this country?" What if we were to compensate these tax-paying workers with overtime and create paths to citizenship? And what if we were to, as a community, vigorously and conscientiously protect the crucial water table beneath our feet?
