Fifty/Fifty – 1708 Gallery 5 x 5 Summer Studio Series

Fifty/Fifty, running June 13 – 25, is a social practice artwork by Assistant Professor John Freyer that will use the 1708 Gallery space in two ways: as a community facing storefront where the general public is invited to stop in for conversations over FIVE CENT COFFEE or FREE ICE WATER; and as a working studio space for the design and build out of the RECOVERY ROAST pour-­over coffee cart. FREE HOT SUPPER will be the culmination of the two. Participants in the first two projects are offered a token, good for one seat at a final supper event. Token holders will give their tokens away to someone who belongs to a population affected by addiction; from persons in long term recovery, to a parent or loved one who is grieving the loss of a son, daughter or friend, or to a stakeholder in local government or recovery resources.
