flower effect is a public art concept envisioned by local flower artists, Patricia Gillespie and Ingrid Shoemaker.
flower effect uses the universal appeal of flowers to inspire direct action and community involvement in the many current issues affecting us all in the Bay Area, ie. social justice, education, or housing and displacement crisis to name a few. By creating immersive floral installations, flower effect will provide a focal point for fundraising and a conduit for neighbor interaction and community building.
flower effect is just getting started, please check back for project updates and how you can get involved or sign up for our newsletter.
