This year I had to honor of working with First Farmer’s State Bank to produce their 2010 Calendar titled “Rural Route”. I spent a good amount of time exploring Delevan, Minier and Bloomington (the locations of the 3 bank branches) and we came up with an edit of 12 images from that work. This has been a wonderful project to be a part of! The calendar was designed by local graphic designer Dena McDonald, and printed at Alpha Graphics in Bloomington. I just got my copy today and couldn’t be happier with the final results!
Prints from the calendar are available for purchase for $60. The money is being divided equally to benefit the 4-H clubs of Tazwell and McLean County, and to establish a photography award for the Illinois State University Student Annual.
First Farmer’s State Bank has been a huge supporter of Photography at Illinois State. For the past year ISU students’ work has been featured in their lobby. Now you can see a few Britten Traughber prints in the lobby, or order one for your home or as a gift and help raise funds for these local organizations!
Orders can be placed by sending a check to the address below. Please indicate which month you are purchasing, and don’t forget to include where the print should be shipped!
