Listen to the Big Blend Radio interview about Exeter while you make our online jigsaw puzzle of Exeter’s Orange Harvest Mural, by artists Colleen Mitchell-Veyna and Morgan McCall, Farmersville, CA. This beautiful mural features a scene of orange pickers in the 1930’s. A very common scene was that of entire families working together while the children played. Can you find the artists daughter with a secret? Make the image full screen for easy viewing, use your mouse or arrow keys to rotate the pieces and drag them where you want to place them.
