Seven teens participated in AVA’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 were installed for July and August 2012.
