Hanging from the street light poles around the intersection of Henderson Street and 46th Avenue is a collection of colorful banners bearing portraits of local, senior-aged gardeners.
Community gardens, p-patches, and private gardens are vibrant spaces where people come together to share knowledge and food. Inspired by their contributions to the community, Angie Hinojos Yusuf created portrait banners of gardeners with personalized graphic backgrounds highlighting their most-loved plants and vegetables. Utopia, part of Seattle's Art Interruptions project, refers to the physical gardens they create as well as the peace and joy that gardeners experience while nurturing their gardens.
