Garden Rant
Gardening While Intoxicated
Buffalo Spree


A year ago, Licata became the fourth member of a group of garden bloggers with an attitude. Garden Rant one of my favorites: A blend of gossip, news, crusade and, yes, raw rant, it blows the cobwebs out of gardening's mustier corners.

Consuming Passions

Consuming Passions: Food•Art•Culture was a collaboration between the contemporary art and folk art programs at the Castellani Art Museum. It contrasted the ways in which traditional cultures celebrate various rituals using food as an intrinsic part of the celebration and the ways in which many contemporary artists address food and eating in their work. Among the contemporary works was sculptor Andy Yoder's 40-foot long silver place setting, Silver: The Table is Set (shown at left) , which hung from the ceiling of the museum's Main Exhibition Hall and Biff Henrich's equally imposing photomural, The Last Supper. Part of the exhibition took place at Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, and included works by Rebeccca Howland, Michael Bramwell, and Stephen Shanabrook. The exhibition was co-curated by E. Licata, Kate Koperski, and Sara Kellner. A catalog with essays by the three curators accompanied the exhibition.
