Honoring the Paul Robeson Tomato

In celebration of Paul Robeson’s 125th birthday, the Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) sought inspiration from the tomatoes for which our region is famous, with a special emphasis on the variety named in his honor. ACP artists Maria Evans and Melissa Kuscin designed and painted this mural — the ninth in this rotating spot on Spring Street that continues despite ongoing area construction — to highlight this milestone and an initiative by the Paul Robeson House of Princeton to distribute Paul Robeson Tomato seeds as part of their Robeson Freedom Garden Campaign.  (Photo by Weronika A.
