​Spring is here and it's time to plant Mr. Frieda’s organic garden at the Petronio Residency Center!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


This cherished sanctuary at PRC will be cultivated for its fourth season, providing heirloom vegetables, edible flowers and ornamentals to artists in residence at PRC. Designed by Jean-Marc Flack (Hortulus Animae), the garden features 24 raised beds set in a maze formation and finished with sitting benches, to encourage visitors to wander and enjoy the delights of each bed.

The garden, a gift of artist Cindy Sherman in honor of her spectacular macaw Mr. Frieda, invites residents and guests to interact with the natural environment surrounding PRC -- wander, rest, or sit and weed, and enjoy the harvest from the garden as part of each meal served at PRC.

And you can help us with the ongoing maintenance of this crucial part of PRC by underwriting the cultivation of one (or more!) beds. A contribution of $500 will allow you to adopt and name an individual bed for the 2021 season that will give vital sustenance to dance-makers and dancers at the most elemental level.
