A Vincent van Gogh[ish] sheep and a Norman Rockwell[ish] cow graze outside The Lebanon Historical Society
“The farming town is best known for its role in the American Revolution, where it was a major base of American operations, and its historic town Green, which is one of the largest in the nation and the only one still used partially for agriculture.”
This and more history found on Wikipedia.
The painted farm Animals I first found on the green a while back at first I thought it sad that the real cows had been replaced by plywood sculpture but on looking closer I found that most had the history of Lebanon written on them and I thought what a creative way to involve children in a history lesson. I’ll look back in the files to find the whole herd. History surrounds the Green with a few museums, farms and churches. A general Store and Town Hall at times you can stand in the middle of the Green squint your eyes and be back in the 1700’s. The king Bee who was on this blog a few weeks back comes from a garden at one of the museums on the Green more on that later. [click on photo for King Bee] Well back to framing for my show. Hope to see someone from Lebanon at the opening.
PS there is a prize for the person who travels furthest to my opening.
