The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara is proud to participate in this community event with a free, art-making workshop inspired by New York-based artist, Alejandro Diaz. A Can for All Seasons II is a hands-on art activity that celebrates the overlap between art and everyday life. Inspired by the practice in rural households of growing plants in empty grocery-store cans, Diaz created four sculptural reproductions of brand-name canned goods, each representing a different type of food that is indigenous to Mexico: corn, chiles, chocolate, and tomatoes. The artist affectionately observes and celebrates the practice of "making do," of using something on hand to create an aesthetic object. For this project, the museum invites participants of all ages to make their own planters using recycled cans, soil, and a variety of seeds to take home. A Can for All Seasons II at "Taste of Milpas" [is] organized by the Milpas Community Association.
