WFM Logo

 

We are pleased to present the brand new WFM logo!

 

The logo was submitted by Julia Morgan-Leamon.
Julia is an Artist and Media producer based in Williamstown working in painting, video and installation. Also, Julia is a part-time events coordinator at Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation
and Williams College, and a community arts educator.

“I am committed to cross-cultural understanding through the lens of art, and
lead yearly art and culture trips to Egypt. As a mother of triplets and a long-time
vegetarian, I believe in sustainable farming practices, local foods, and
that all animals, even those raised for food, deserve to be well-treated. To
that end I wanted to include a calf along with the vegetables in the logo I
submitted. The whimsical calf looking back at us is a reminder to be mindful
of what we eat and what we support. I was happy to have my logo selected!” -Julia
