Brooklyn Artist Looking To Create

The World’s Largest Environmental Art Installation

The Seed Project

The Seed Project

NEW YORK, April 18th, 2012. David Cohen, a brooklyn based Artist, and activist, is launching a new phase of The Seed Project to exponentially increase its reach to thousands of students at schools and universities across the United States.

If you haven’t heard of the Seed Project yet, the idea is simple. Plant Seeds, and by default you become an artist. Creating life is art after all. Document what you grow. Send it to the-seed-project.org, send it to your friends and family, or all of the above.

“The project is entering an exciting new phase, if we can get minimum funding, we can launch this project in a much bigger way, to really take it to the next level. We have a vision, to create Millions, Billions and then Trillions of Seed Projects, where people accept their roles as artists and creative protectors in this ever-changing, rapidly degrading world we live in. We can’t think a of a better way than to encourage small scale local agriculture in future generations than by pairing the power of creativity with the life-giving power of planting.”

The piece has ties to the Social Sculpture movement but integrates the accelerating phenomenon of Social Media in a new way – by creating a network of environmental artists. The idea is to inspire future environmental activism and spark creative thinking by mixing creativity with planting, ultimately creating a new generation of empowered artists.

The project began in 2008 when he launched the project in conjunction with his publication Artworld Digest Magazine. Since the initial launch of the project thousands of artists around the globe have planted the project, including several schools and universities.

His hopes in this phase of the project are in no small part relying on online donations, starting specifically with Kickstarter.com, one of the hottest online fundraising platforms for creative projects, to raise a minimum of $6,000 to launch the project. Mr. Cohen is hoping for a lot more to make the project as widespread as possible.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
