Richfield Mural Artist
Our new store will feature an outdoor mural on the Lyndale Avenue side of the building. Through this accessible public forum, we seek to tell these stories:
- Richfield’s history as a farming community
- Lakewinds as a natural and organic foods cooperative
- The role of food in a community
Meet the muralist chosen for our Richfield store
Adam Turman is known to many Twin Cities residents for his colorful murals that grace the interior and exterior of The Butcher and the Boar, 612 Brewery, Digby’s and Yamamoto. Turman’s wide-ranging portfolio of murals and illustrations (www.adamturman.com) captures his sense of style, story, humanity and humor. Raised in Edina and now a resident of St. Louis Park, Adam knows the people, places and values of our local communities.
We’re thrilled to be working with Adam at our new Richfield store, where he will help us tell the Lakewinds story on a 10-foot by 24-foot mural facing Lyndale Avenue. This original public art piece will welcome Lakewinds shoppers and surrounding residents alike.
We recently met with Adam at the site to view the mural space and see the progress of the store construction while talking about ideas over a slice of pizza. He’s enthusiastic about our history— how Lakewinds began, how we’ve grown, and how we’ve stayed true to our roots and our co-op principles. The themes of local food, sustainable agriculture, high standards, and our commitment to community all resonated with the artist.
Conceptual design work will begin in April. Once the ideas are complete, Adam will prepare to transfer his work from paper to our co-op’s wall. Follow Adam’s progress on our website to share in this exciting step toward opening Lakewinds’ doors in Richfield this summer.
