If you ever drive down Main Street through downtown Wilmington, you would be hard pressed to miss the Heritage Harvesters mural. It’s 63’x50′ and is a tribute to local farmers. Painted by artist Jason Morgan who also created the Community Garden mural, it portrays farmers connected to the Ohio Century Farms in Clinton County.
It’s jaw dropping, partly for its sheer size and partly for the realism of the people. It looks like the Grapes of Wrath come to life.
Find it on the corner of Main and South streets.
I think these murals are fantastic. We are getting more and more of them overhere in the UK. Saw a fantastic one of John Lennon today in Liverpool but it was on a busy road and i couldnt stop.
Oh my. That sounds wonderful! But I do hate it when they’re in places where you can’t really stop to appreciate them. Regardless, finding art in unexpected places does add something to your day!
