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!
A big, warm thank you goes to Stacey Rubinstein and Alan Karpas for connecting our project to the public.
We also thank architect and friend, Tom Singer for helping us mount our sculptures.
Of course, we must express our gratitude to The Township of Livingston, and its Department of Public Works.
Lastly, thank you Gamma Psi Epsilon Fraternity for volunteering your time in the early stages of our work.
IT’S HARVEST TIME!
