Buy an AM Radio wheatfield, help feed the hungry

AM Radio’s wheatfield build has grabbed a lot of deserved attention in SL art circles, and rightfully so!   If you haven’t seen his place, check this image out:

Just incredible work – immersive art at its finest.   Not surprisingly, the attention has built up some demand from the art collecting community; there just aren’t builds like this all over the grid.  In fact, I’ve never had an SL experience like this.

Thing is, AM Radio doesn’t really want the money.  So he took his simple wheatfield concept and chose a noble purpose – feeding the hungry through Heifer International:

There are 4 20x20m configurations – 1 plain, 1 with a rusted out 1932 Ford, 1 with a couple Shaker-style chairs and one with his popular train.  And ALL proceeds from this go to Heifer International.  I’ve never heard of this group, but its forward-thinking approach toward poverty and the environment is quite impressive – and they’re making this work all over the world (the REAL world…that RL thing).

Being a sucker for great art, I grabbed my field of wheat – the one with the 1932 Ford.  And I put it out on the Shepherd sim side of Oyster Bay:

What a treat.  I know I’m not shy about telling people to buy great works of SL art…but this one is truly special.  Not just because it’s great art, but also to support the power of the arts to do good in our real world.  Kudos to AM Radio for his good works!

Teleport over to his place!
