A Public Art Project Shows You the Colors You Should Be Eating

by Peter Smith

April 3, 2011

The mural was taken down after 11 months and Tattfoo is now working on a new Nature Matching System mural on the playground of PS971 in Brooklyn, which should be finished this summer. The projects are visible, public counterpoints to prevailing food marketing and design. They remind us to eat fruits and vegetables without being didactic. For that alone, it's an interesting model for nutrition education that could be replicated in other neighborhoods.
