“Really Small Museum” – Botanical Wisdom Workshop with Paloma Mayorga

May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Throughout the year, TEMPO on the Trail artist Juliet Whitsett will collaborate with artists and organizations to integrate eco-focused art installations into her 2024-2025 Really Small Museum – Eco (RSME) project, situated at the Holly Trail.

Through a series of creative exercises, we will explore memories attached to plants to create a collection of shared wisdom about the healing power of plants. Participants will contribute to the creation of a zine that will be produced by the artist later this year and will receive a complimentary custom herbal tea blend to take home.

This event coincides with Hija de flores / Daughter of flowers, an installation by local artist Paloma Mayorga composed of floral DNA representations that investigate the concept of botanical wisdom, or the practice of slowly unearthing bits of inherited knowledge that have been passed down generations of women as tools for healing and survival.

Paloma Mayorga is an interdisciplinary artist and independent curator born and based in Austin, TX. Working across photography, video, performance, and installation, Mayorga often uses her own body as medium to explore movement, place, and cultural identity in relation to landscape and ancestral uses of plants.

This event is part of the 2024-2025 Really Small Museum – Eco (RSME) TEMPO on the Trail in partnership with The Trail Conservancy.
