Speak Up For Small Farms , 2010

by Adelina Castro; Bill Watson


Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Silo 3417 Vinton Street Omaha, NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential

Additional Information: The artists encourage support for smaller scale agriculture with the banner, “Speak Up for Small Farms.” Conceived as a ‘landscape’ of political activism, their banner is a quilt of 539 colored hexagons with each swatch indicating a Senate or Congressional district and enjoining them with the printed statement, “Speak Up for Small Farms.” When installed, the banner will represent a roll call of those who have the power to change the way we legislate and regulate farming in the United States. After exhibition at four locations in Nebraska, the banner will be harvested by a regional group of farmers, and each hexagon will be detached and mailed to the designated US Senator, Member of The House of Representatives, and host cities Mayor.
