At the memorial for Adam Purple
Friends and neighbors came together yesterday at La Plaza Cultural on Avenue C and East Ninth Street to remember environmental activist and urban gardening pioneer Adam Purple, who died Sept. 14 at age 84.
EVG contributor Stacie Joy stopped by for some photos ...
Meanwhile, the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) has an exhibit on display through Oct. 10 featuring photographs, zines and other ephemera as well as a film by Harvey Wang and articles about Purple's life and work.
MoRUS is also exhibiting the machine that created the purple footprints leading to his Garden of Eden on the Lower East Side.
Find more details here.
MoRUS is at 155 Avenue C between East Ninth Street and East 10th Street.
