Poe & Grow Garden Mural

The Art of Nutrition Education:

Teaching Mural Enhances Poe & Grow Garden

Artist Sean Kernick

Visitors to the Poe Center’s teaching garden will also get a lesson in the art of nutrition thanks to the talents of local muralist Sean Kernick.

With support from Poe’s SNAP-Ed grant and a partnership with The Raleigh Murals Project, Poe Center staff worked with Sean to develop a mural that is both beautiful and educational.  The mural will be used in the Poe Center’s garden curriculum to illustrate growing seasons, root systems, pollinators, and varieties of fruits and vegetables.

When asked what inspired him to take on this project, Sean says “he was drawn to the wall and its composition. It’s texture and organization presented so many possibilities for capturing the journey between seasons and between the soil and air that gardens can take you on.” View more of Sean Kernick’s work.
