Company Summary

When his son wanted a tree house, designer Brock Davis playfully built his son a tiny treehouse in a head of broccoli. We envision of an innovative, large-scale art piece translating the simple elegance of Davis's design into a giant piece of broccoli that inspires viewers to “climb into” what they eat. Project Big Broccoli hopes to be a powerful piece of art that will stimulate conversation and education about food in Nevada.
