2009 Orchids & Onions jury comments:
"When artist Lynn Susholtz renovated the old North Park Produce building into Art Produce, her plans included a "pedestrian art gallery." The long and narrow space has storefront windows along University Avenue, where the art is part of the street, the art viewer is also on display, and the activity of the street becomes part of the experience of the art. Places like this are fundamental to the experience of walking in the city. It creates a public space, a meeting space. It is places like this gallery and the view it shares with the street, that make walking in the city worthwhile." The jury noted that this award "generated much debate over what exactly defines the "public" aspect in public art...Art Produce does much more than a sculpture sitting in the middle of a plaza. It's a provocation to think about art in the community".
