American Gothic Meets Wakeman Town Farm

Miggs Burroughs is the go-to guy for logos, posters, flyers.  Any time a local organization needs clever publicity, Miggs is the man.

And he seldom charges for his talents.

For the Wakeman Town Farm’s holiday open house next Sunday (December 11, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., $5) — and a “welcome home” to stewards Mike and Carrie Aitkenhead — he drew inspiration from a famous farm painting: Grant Wood’s “American Gothic.”

As the poster notes, the open house features refreshments, wreath-decorating, games, and a tour of the farmhouse.

What Miggs left out of the poster is that the Town Farm’s new logo will be unveiled there. Mugs, t-shirts and hats with the new logo will be available for holiday gift giving.

And who designed the soon-to-be-seen WTF logo?

Miggs Burroughs, of course.
