Lemonade Stand Project

The Lemonade Stand Project, created by Studio Artist Allison Coleman (Studio 107), is a mobile art-making, story telling, recipe sharing receptacle in the guise of a traditional lemonade stand – and it’s going virtual!

Allison would love to learn about the recipes of comfort food you are cooking in these troubling times, or just comfort food that your family makes. Share your recipes with her by:

Other ways to share include creating a video and/or photo of yourself making the dish and sharing why the recipe is important to you and/or your family, and what the dish means for you.
