Oklahoma State University’s Studio Methods class is unveiling its latest project, a mural dubbed “Locla-homa Grown,” on Wednesday, May 3, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Food Pyramid in Stillwater. The class has been planning and painting the mural most of the semester and is eager to share its final product, along with free refreshments at the store, located at 421 N. Main Street.
The students have incorporated a creative and original design to capture the state of Oklahoma’s agricultural successes with a vibrant display featuring a wide variety of crops grown locally throughout the state.
“It’s been a long process, but it’s been very rewarding and informational. I know a lot more now about our local agriculture after doing all of the research this mural design required,” said Colton Sanchez, a student who worked on the project.
“Not only have I discovered a lot about myself as an artist throughout this whole process, I’ve also gained so much knowledge about our state,” said Nicole McMurry, a contributing artist.
Additional artists who worked on the mural include: Rachele Cromer, Megan Crow, Katie Daniel, Whitney Hampton, Calli Heflin, Caytlyn Hind, Sami Lucas, Nicole McMurry, Jasmine Parks, Ashlan Sullivan, Marisa Smith, and Kitra Smith with Liz Roth, associate professor in the department of art, graphic design and art history.
For those that miss the opening, the mural will remain on display at Food Pyramid, which is open daily from 6 a.m. to midnight.
