Art in the Marketplace Community Mural Project
Appel Farm commissioned large-scale murals in downtown Vineland and Bridgeton through a generous grant from PNC Arts Alive.
PNC Arts Alive is a five-year, $5-million grants initiative that challenges visual and performing arts organizations to put forth their best, most original thinking in expanding audience participation and engagement.
Designed by well-known artist Cesar Viveros, the Vineland painting was done by volunteers on 5 x 5 panels that has been installed on a Landis Avenue building by the new farmer’s market. The Bridgeton mural was installed in the new downtown "pocket park" at the intersection of Laurel and Commerce Streets.
We were delighted that Main Street Vineland and the City of Bridgeton partnered with Appel Farm on these projects. Thank you!
