Garden Painting: Ruth Bennett Community Farm

Envisioned as a tribute to the flowers and fresh produce grown by the Ruth Bennett Community Farm, the mural design features hundreds of individual sections of repeating imagery painted by participants of the Chester community. Tracing from stencils and working from templates, each participant was encouraged to create their own interpretation of the imagery and leave their unique mark on the mural, resulting in a vibrant array of visions and voices expressed throughout the composition.

The mural was made throughout Fall 2022. Participants were paid for their contribution. 

This project was supported by The TD Charitable Foundation, Widener University, and the Chester Housing Authority.
