The Big Green Rooster: Fill Your Heart with Art at Farmview Market


big green roosterDid you know that today, January 31st, is National Inspire Your Heart with Art Day? Farmview is famous for its support of local vendors and farmers. This is due to our belief that supporting local merchants, our community benefits in numerous ways. Recently, we decided to inspire our hearts with art and lend our support to the art community, by collaborating with a few local businesses.

The Farmview front yard was looking a little bare and needed something fun, festive and colorful to welcome our guests. Naturally, we hired our neighbors and good buddies Great Estates Landscaping to help us create the most artistic centerpiece we could craft, with a Farmview twist of course! Our inspiration came, on a cold winter’s night, from our very own Farmview logo. Thus, our Big Green Rooster was born!

Our art project began in a warehouse, where our rooster began to take shape. The first step was to create a wooden frame and outline. Next, Great Estates Landscaping suggested a special, weather proof material to craft the rooster out of. The weather in Madison, Georgia may be unpredictable, but the Big Green Rooster will be able to withstand it! Plus, the material was able to be painted whatever color we could think of. But, only one color would do. The Big Rooster was painted our very own Farmview green, to match our recognizable logo. In the end, our Big Green Rooster stands at 12” tall!

Great Estates stepped in again and told us of a fantastic addition. Great Estates Landscaping hooked our rooster up with incredible LED lights (500 individual lights surround our Big Green Rooster!), and the lights are controlled and managed online! They were also able to program our LED lights so that each light can be easily changed and have the capability to be any color we please.

This art piece was definitely a collaborative effort from our friends at Great Estates. Without their knowledge and know-how, our rooster would never have been able to be lit. Now, our Big Green Rooster shines brilliantly, thanks to the LED light technology.
