Common Urban Edible Plants

Common Urban Edible Plants native to Minneapolis grow all over downtown, including the ground that the Hennepin County Library rests upon. Artist-in-residence for the Spencer Collection in the Minneapolis Athenaeum, Paige Dansinger, invites members of the Best Buy Teen Tech Lab to join her in drawing common urban edible plants in digital and virtual reality. Regaining traditional edible and medicinal knowledge while using new creative technology helps make 17-19th century botanical prints relevant to today’s young audiences.
