Fuel your creative brain with a Progressive Opening event put on by the George Eastman House and the Rochester Contemporary tomorrow, Friday, May 8.

First, view “Not A Cornfield,” a photography and video installation at the Eastman House that captures the transformation of a 32-acre brownfield in historic central Los Angeles into a cornfield for one agricultural cycle. Meet artist Lauren Bon in person. The project was created to raise questions about the nature of urban public spaces and to convey redemption and hope. Light refreshments will be served, 6 til 8 pm.

Continue your evening at Rochester Contemporary Art Center. View the exhibition in between, featuring paintings and sculptures by Brooklyn-based artists Malin Abrahamsson and Ricky Sears inspired by their first experiences with Rochester’s vacant lots, and visit the P.L.A.N.T. Reading Room. Inspired by the Metabolic Studio, the P.L.A.N.T. Reading Room is a new space dedicated to participatory art practice and a healthier Rochester. (P.L.A.N.T. = Place, Land, Art & Agriculture, Neighbors, and Technology) Light refreshments, 7:30 til 10 pm.
