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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
