On May 16th, Silo Artist, Sarah Rutherford, submitted her final design for the proposed artwork on the silos. Subsequently, hours later, the artwork was presented at the Village of Jeffersonville Annual Meeting. The 46 village residents in attendance assessed the artwork, asked questions, and ultimately voted unanimously to approve the artwork.
The North Silo represents the summer and autumn seasons. The male farmer represent the current or past generation looking towards the future generation (on the South Silo). The covered bridge, horses, church clock tower/steeple, and drawn logs represent Cambridge history and imagery. The artist spent many hours learning about the community history in the past year. On the South Silo, the bandstand that once sat at the head of Main Street is featured. A child represents the future generation. Both silos feature cohesive elements such as the thrush and red clover, state symbols. Winter and spring are depicted on the South Silo.
Rutherford arrives in Cambridge on June 19th and will begin painting on June 22nd. Community members have already begun work on preparing the silos for the artist's arrival. The Cambridge Fire Department pressure-washed the North Silo on May 16th, and there is a community work party planned for May 28th from 9am to 1pm (rain date June 4th) to clean the base of the silos of debris. The week of June 12th, further prepping will occur once the boom lift arrives on site.
Below are the final designs. Some slight changes may occur in the final painting installation that could differ from these illustrations.
