Sometimes art and agriculture takes a visionary. And sometimes fine art is not all meant for gallery white walls. So begins a public art mural project designed to take a shipping container and a long ugly fence in run down rural farm area, and transform it into a cultural landscape for the eyes, the hand, and the heart.
Daron Babcock, the farm’s director and the leader of BridgeBuilders’ urban missions, hopes the 8-foot-high fence, installed around the farm last December, will become a canvas for other artists.
Where there’s no hope, Babcock said, there’s no creativity. “I want to do everything I can to foster that creative spirit,” he said. More about Babcock’s agricultural vision and Matthew Brinston’s creative execution is here.
