For those of you residing in or visiting the Minneapolis-St. Paul area in the 
near future (the gallery show runs through 8/24/03), here's an opportunity 
to combine a love of art and gardening.  Tour "Encampment", an art 
installation at No Name Exhibitions at the Soap Factory, 2nd Street at 5th 
Avenue Southeast, Minneapolis, 612-623-9176; 

As reported in the Minneapolis Star Tribune today 
(www.startribune.com/freetime/art), "Richard Saxton of York, Alabama has 
designed an adult-sized tricycle, equipped with a trailer and 55-gallon drum 
that can be used to cart water to parks and public gardens that lack 
plumbing".  A photograph accompanying this article shows that the trailer 
and tricycle also holds garden tools and includes a solar panel.  Other 
artists in this socio-political and environmental installation "Encampent" 
present "an immense wigwam or dwelling made of bent saplings, a plastic 
wading pool turned into a bog fed with sink water that's filtered through a 
bucket of rocks and sand, and herbs growing in large plastic buckets".
