Using pieces from his previous artworks, the artist will show us how to make, destroy and document small works of art.  General Economy Exquisite Exchange (G.E.E.E.) How much is a seedling worth to you? Would you be willing to give up, say, a pound cake for it? General Economy Exquisite Exchange, a project of Cream Co., has seasonal plants, Amish Friendship Bread starter dough and things you would traditionally make and gift to neighbors and friends available for sale or exchange. The G.E.E.E. team will be here at Fun for All showing kids how to plant seedlings in egg shells and newspaper, and talking about the value of exchange. Bring cash or your own plants, baked goods or homespun materials to exchange for plants, gardening items, cookbooks and baked goods. Come see how our local abundance supports a general economy.  Performance by CORE Project Dance performance collection CORE PROJECT will be here to perform duets from their newest show “Going Dutch”. The show combines female voices, performances and installation art. Sunday, April 10 12- 4 pm, FREE
