Nicole Dextras’s Mobile Garden Dress is among the unique art projects at the No. 9 Eco-Art Fest

JUNE 22 TO SEPTEMBER 21  The notion of disruptive innovation takes on historical, environmental and artistic dimensions this summer during the No. 9 Eco-Art-Fest. Presented at 19th-century heritage site Todmorden Mills by No. 9, an organization that uses art and design to raise awareness of ecological concerns, the inclusive event assembles a number of installations intended to get visitors thinking about nature and sustainability. Dean Baldwin’s Heliwell Bier Garten, for example, fosters engagement with one’s surroundings—it’s literally a beer garden and functioning potters’ workshop—while Nicole Dextras’ Urban Forages series of wearable sculptures provides alternative fashion for the “new urban nomad.”  —Craig Moy
