Metabolic Studio IOU Garden

An artwork by Lauren Bon and The Metabolic Studio in Lone Pine sets the foundation for the Metabolic Studio IOU Garden, a collaborative effort by local residents dedicated to exploring the relationships between the Owens Valley and Los Angeles through art and philanthropy.

Located on land leased from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the IOU Garden is the Studio's way of giving back to the Owens Valley in return for the water that sustains Los Angeles, by supporting local efforts toward sustainability.  

Sponsored by supporters in Los Angeles, our garden is activated by local community members.  

The IOU is also home to a Community Bread Oven made of brick and stabilized Owens Lake Bed materials.
