SWALLOWED BY NATURE > The Green Yard Project 2015

Bronx artist Natalie Collette Wood presents 'moss murals' in the Montefiore Courtyards for Summer 2015. The Green Yard Project is made entirely from live moss that the artist collaged and painted directly onto the walls, creating an imaginary garden. The installation provides a fictional environment that promotes green spaces, nature, and health for Montefiore patients, families, staff, and the surrounding Bronx community. Wood's work questions how nature and urban environments interact with one another and cohabitant together. The Green Yard Project celebrates the throbbing, pulsating, force that is fantasy, nature and sculpture.
