Indigo returns to North Carolina. An initiative by Catherine Cross Tsintzos (www.CatherineCrossTsintzos.com) and her Art and Agriculture Project.
After much research and cultivation of Indigo Suffruticosa over a period of six years, a partnership has been formed to bring some of the indigo grown in the Southeast back to the Wilmington area where it was historically grown prior to the American Revolutionary War.
The Art and Agriculture Project works with educational institutions providing presentations, workshops and engages as a Visiting Artist Resident with schools and museums. In Wilmington, the Project partners with the Louise B. Wells Cameron Art Museum.
