Commodity Icon Art Challenge



Congratulations to  Kristal on her Artwork.

Kristal participated in the Commodity Icon Art Challenge through NYS Ag in the Classroom. Kristal has been selected by a jury of artists, View Arts team members, and NYAITC staff and her work will be exhibited from March-May in “The Art of Agriculture Student Exhibit” at View Arts in Old Forge NY. Students created 3" X 3" artwork for agricultural commodities in NYS and they will be used for an interactive digital map, websites, and signs throughout NYS. 26 different icons will help people locate areas where each crop is grown and take them to information about the commodity. Kristal is shown holding her original artwork that has now been handed off to NYS Ag & Markets. (Beef & Grapes)
