I’m delighted to have coordinated and supported this wonderful 2012 teen mural project in Lebanon, NH.
Seven teens participated in AVA Gallery and Art Center’s Public Art Murals Camp, led by Julie Püttgen. Each made their own 3′ x 6′ painting on canvas. Once hanging on the fence in Lebanon’s Colburn Park, the installation measures an impressive 3′ x 63′.
Participants visited Cedar Circle Farm in East Thetford, VT to learn about contemporary organic farming practices, take source photographs, and inspire their work. Back in the studio, they developed content around themes of community, farmers’ markets, agriculture, and America’s suspect eating habits.
The paintings will be installed through mid-August — please swing by to see them if you can.
