Fertile Ground / by Meg Saligman

At 350,000 square feet, Fertile Ground was the largest mural in the country when I painted it in Omaha, Nebraska in 2008.  I am honored that an arts-integrated course of study centered on Fertile Ground has been incorporated into the curriculums for third and fourth grade in Omaha public schools. Please view this video: Fertile Ground Education Project.  For me, it strikes right at the heart of one of the most fulfilling aspects of my practice. I truly believe the world would be a much better place if we spent more time gathering together to create something beautiful with our hands.
