Join us for Siobhan Rigg’s Artist Talk and learn how she focused her residency on the current and future circulation of toxicity through the plant life, people, and governance structures that serve to monitor the Anacostia River area.

Siobhan posed the questions: “What would it feel like to approach the tidal Anacostia as a place that directly supports the lives of those living on its banks – as a foodshed? As a place that you put your mouth on – in a potentially different future, and now, among the messiness of the present?”

Over the course of her residency, Siobhan produced a series of maps of the tidal Anacostia River (from Bladensburg, MD to its confluence with the Potomac) identifying all the editable plants she collected by kayaking this eight-mile stretch of Anacostia River.

The Honfleur Gallery will open at 11:00 AM, one hour prior to the start of Siobhan’s Artist Talk.
