On Site Experiences
Visitor Engagement Experiences
Our daily, interactive engagements are designed for all ages and explore topics like sustainable design, food equity, and ethical supply chains.
We offer fresh food and beverages available for purchase in the Commons.
On Tuesdays, visitors may purchase the same meal we donate to the community, as part of our Foundation’s food relief program in partnership with local not-for-profits. Grace Farms has provided healthy meals to more than 130,000 people since March 16, 2020. Proceeds from food sales in the Commons help support the program. Vegetarian options are available.
What is Grace Farms and how does Grace Farms Foundation advance good in the world? An immersive installation inspired by nature, Peace Forest offers visitors an interactive experience highlighting how the landscape, architecture, and people at Grace Farms are part of the Foundation’s mission. Pedestals made with ethically sourced steel and wood repurposed from the site gently sway when touched, and will feature text, objects, and archival photos. A video installation and a map of Grace Farms will highlight offerings each day. The installation is curated by Grace Farms Foundation Creative Director Chelsea Thatcher and designed by Peter Miller (Palette Architecture) and Shohei Yoshida (shohei yoshida + associates / SYA), members of the SANAA-led design team for the award-winning River building at Grace Farms.
Can we continue responding in the interest of the common good after a crisis? Designed by MASS Design with graphics by Pentagram, this exhibit considers the relationships and connections that inspired Grace Farms Foundation’s efforts to provide food relief to hundreds of thousands, 2 million critical PPE to frontline health care workers, and public programming to address the uncertainty caused by the pandemic for all. This work was made possible through our collaboration with the State of Connecticut, a partnership commemorated at a ceremonial bill signing by Governor Ned Lamont. On view October 2021-January 2023.
