I've been working this spring and summer with an awesome artistic talented teen from Bayview Community. The Bayview peeps wrote a grant to the Madison Arts Commission based on gardening, art, murals, and mentoring. The young artist Tou is beyond his years and heading to Madison College this next fall. We spent the spring interviewing and working with three different groups of people at Bayview. We interviewed the young, the old, and teens about the strong traditions of gardening in their lives. From these interviews we designed this image incorporating all their ideas. This final image created by Tou will be painted some time this fall at Bayview. Young people doing amazing things gives us hope for the arts in our world!!!
