The art world has noticed — the reputable Ace Gallery picked up The Date Farmers for a show in December 2010, and they are also are currently showing at the Oakland Museum of Art. Last summer, The Date Farmers took their concept of reusing materials to the next level with their show at the San Diego Museum of Art. Here, they focused on branching outside of the exhibition, creating a series of murals in a downtrodden urban area. The permanent murals focus on urban renewal and the rehabilitation of parts of downtown San Diego through art that inspires change.

WHY THIS MATTERS

The Date Farmers transform waste materials into thought-provoking artworks that inspire social change.
