This week's "Artist of the Week Wednesday" is John Fekner! According to Wikipedia, Fekner is "an innovative multimedia artist who created hundreds of environmental and conceptual outdoor works consisting of stenciled words, symbols, dates and icons spray painted in New York, Sweden, Canada, England and Germany in the 1970s and 1980s." One interesting artwork of his and Don Leicht's "Mother Earth Will Survive (Your Journey Through The Secret Life of Plants). Their interpretation is stated to reveal nature's determination and longevity through adaptation and survival, whether it’s growing through a crack of city concrete or the local communities’ own personal effort in revitalizing an abandoned lot into a sustainable and thriving garden."
