The mural was painted for the 40 West Farmers Market. The size is 20′ X 7′.
The new market opened in the summer of 2016. Their big blue metal shipping container needed some art for the promotion of the market and to beautify the Lamar Plaza, where it is located, on West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood, CO
The goal for the design of the mural was to acquaint the viewer with the history of Lakewood’s agriculture. It shows what fruits and vegetables grow here and what they can anticipate getting at the farmers market.
Due to the prominent relief of the container, I decided to keep the design simple, with bold elements and without too many intricate lines and details.
Fields with pasturing cows, a wind mill, farm houses and buildings, fruit trees – all this used to be the main part of a landscape of Lakewood, just about 50 years ago.
