Ayanna Jolivet McCloud
Ayanna Jolivet McCloud will launch an online experimental botanica/herberia, and present a series of parallel public programs devoted to arts and ecology. "labotanica" was originally founded in response to the lack of artist-run project spaces in Houston, and after a recent break it will be reformed with a new economic model at its core. This restructuring will pair experimental and bold art with ideas and products grounded in ecology. The online store will sell a small inventory of products and there will be a blog component featuring interviews with artists, scientists, ecologists and healers. At each public program (workshops, lectures, musical performances), labotanica products from the online store will be featured in a mini mobile botanica.
