Volunteerism (Rockett Beeson): “While developing the protosketch for this artwork, I wanted to use a shape that envelopes the actions and had a roundabout form to link the characters together. By using a circle I was able to center the focus on the sun and the name “Fairfax” which set the tone for the rest of the artwork. The characters in the artwork were of varying race, gender, and had a different set of clothing. I did this to portray the divers and open community Fairfax has and wants to represent. As the final detail, I used warm, yellow tones to portray Fairfax’s calm and welcoming tone that has been a part of its charm for much of my life.”
