Farmers’ Markets of PA
Artist: Sean Bodley
Location: Pump Station, 103 Boal Avenue, Boalsburg PA 16827
This bench celebrates the many Farmers Markets throughout Centre County. Our thriving range of agriculture inspired several perspectives. The lay of the land, valleys and ridges, is filled with a variety of farms and farming styles. The community supports local food at many markets throughout the year in addition to participating in CSAs. The back of the bench glorifies the wonderful food grown here that is both nutritious and colorful!
“I was first struck by the beauty and rich history of Pennsylvania when I arrived here from the Midwest in 2011. It is an honor to paint these benches and show my appreciation for the region. Public art has always been a passion of mine and after the first community meeting for this project I knew I was interested in participating!”
