Going to Market

This triptych was purchased by the City of Ithaca from the 2009 Art in the Heart of the City display.  The theme that year was "sustainability."  Each panel is 4' x 6'.  It is located near the Home Dairy alley on the Ithaca Commons.

The theme of the piece is buying locally.  The first panel shows the farmer's fields in early spring, with a biker in the distant background, along with a windmill.  In the second panel, the farmers are harvesting the fields with the biker in the middle ground.  The third panel shows the biker at the Ithaca Farmers' Market purchasing the local produce.  This mural is even more meaningful for this space since the first IFM was on the Commons.

Speaking of the Ithaca Farmers' Market, you can find me there many Saturdays in booth 85.
