For the past five years, Clare Patey has managed to shut down a bridge in London and invite thousands to come together to celebrate local food.
The internationally recognized artist and curator has made a name for herself creating what she calls social spaces in the public realm and opportunities for people to connect with the food they eat.
When Patey came to Phoenix a year ago to talk about the future of museums at ASU Art Museum, she was introduced to artist and farming activist Matthew Moore of Urban Plough. The two hit it off, began talking about food, and made some huge plans for 2013, including Feast on the Street.
