Launched in the Fall of 2018, the MCL Grand’s Chalk Art Walls reside above the theater’s Main Street and Church Street interior entrances and feature original chalk works by local artists. The initiative aims to introduce more visual art works to the MCL Grand by reimagining these 12’ by 4’ spaces throughout the year with new designs. The walls are available for viewing Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. or during public events at the MCL Grand.
Artists interested in participating in the MCL Grand’s Chalk Wall program may contact Denise Helbing at email@example.com.
Current Chalk Art Walls
Play On! by Christi Martini
My art is an expression of captured moments, that speak to my soul and create a mood. They may be funny, happy, sad, peaceful, exciting, wistful, intriguing, or whimsical, but my goal is to pull the viewer into the painting and recreate that emotion in them. I work primarily in watercolor and acrylic, sometimes combined, depending on the subject and desired result.
The Colors from Our Soul by Ashley Wright
My body of work has revealing aspects of storytelling and viewer participation. My art captures a pivotal moment and a mood to portray the story being told however, it is up to the viewer to determine the stories ending. I work primarily in Chalk pastels and Acrylic mediums.
Past Chalk Art Works
This work was on display over the Main Street entrance door from September - December 2018 and highlights the western boot, an iconic symbol of the cowboy lifestyle. Once essential footwear for getting the job done without falling off your horse, or suffering a snake bite, western boots have become today’s functional high fashion.
This work was on display above the Church Street entrance door from September - December 2018. Michelle is an artist who works through inspiration and imagination, provoking thought of deeper meanings in life. Inspired by Native American stories about the raven and horse, Michelle’s piece exemplifies the strength and beauty that emerges from struggle and change.
