First Pigment Garden Project Group Meeting at Greenfield Community College

Nearly forty years ago I attended Greenfield Community College for about a year before transferring to the Ada Comstock Program at Smith College. The campus is as gorgeous as I remember it. The most significant change--a huge food court and student lounge, the presence of computer labs and cell-phone use.

At Soledad Suarez's suggestion I went to check out a newly formed Pigment Garden Project initiated by GCC faculty, Kelly Popoff and Tony Reiber--seen below in the slide show.  The group will meet in a collaboration between the art department and science department to research, grow, and process different fibers with a diversity of mordants to explore their efficacy as light fast dyes for fabric and paper.
