Wasserman Project Hosts Special Event with Belgian Artist Koen Vanmechelen
Wednesday, September 27, 2017
A one-night special event to experience Walkabout Farm, which opened in spring 2017 as
part of Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen’s Planetary Community Chicken (PCC) project in
Detroit. The cocktail party will include a presentation by Vanmechelen highlighting his
collaborations with Wasserman Projects and Oakland Avenue Urban Farm, as well as
opportunities to engage in conversation with the artist and other leadership in attendance.
Guests will also enjoy a performance by Grammy-winning musician Jeremy Kittel in a
relaxed cocktail environment.
The evening marks the first time Walkabout Farm has been opened for a public event, and
supports Vanmechelen’s ongoing work in Detroit, as he continues to explore the role of art
and artists in building healthy, vibrant communities.
