For Cargill's campaign, Feed Your Dreams, they have been using artwork made out of grain, silage, feed etc. for their promotional pieces. To carry on that theme and since Cargill was the sponsor of the Supreme champion award at the All-American Dairy Show in Harrisburg, PA, they had the idea to design their logo in the middle of the show ring.
So that's where I came in. My friend Rebecca who works for Cargill asked me if I thought I could pull off designing the Cargill logo out of sawdust in the show ring. It was definitely a request that I had never had before and I was ready to give the task a try. After a practice round in our barn at home with a pile of sawdust, I felt confident that I could pull it off. Cargill was convinced as well and so the plans were set.
2 hours after we started, 2 bags of black mulch, 2 cans of green spray paint and I can say that I was extremely pleased at how the logo turned out. I had never done a 3D art piece at that large of a scale before. The logo looked great in the middle of the show ring and it was no question to the audience who the sponsor was for the award!
Thank you to Cargill for trusting me to pull this off and thank you for giving me an art project that I don't typically get to engage in. It was great to create some art away from my computer and get my hands dirty at a cow show!
