Artist Harvest

artist harvest logo with website

The Artist Harvest was conceived of by Donna Bernstein, a business owner, mother, and artist who wanted to find a way to marry public art with a love of healthy eating. Thus the sculpture project was born! The Artist Harvest consists of five large-scale fruit and veggie sculptures, each featuring our interpretation of a famous painting, and named according to the artist. This undertaking has been over a year in the making, and required the skills of all the artists on hand at The Messy Artist, along with their very artistic students.

Art is a visual way to communicate. Sometimes it can create a connection with a viewer, even more powerful than words. We hope that the art we’ve created causes you to admire its beauty, giggle at its whimsy, and trigger a desire to incorporate tastier, healthier options into your family’s lifestyle. We hope you appreciate how much effort went into creating these, both by talented artists, and their young artists-in-training. We hope you are inspired!
