Saturday April 28th
We honored the celebrity guest Kimberly Lacy from HGTV's hit show "Curb Appeal" with a gigantic dynamic piece of artwork. Local artist Jacob Brooks of Skinny Man Studios created a 20' 3D mural from an original photograph of the historic Cummer House taken by Bradley Stookey of Jacksonville Magazine. Riverside Avondale Preservation Society provided historical information and archive photos that showed story behind the real house. It was an honor to recreate such a great landmark! Sherry Hill Corrie added several small gardens of vibrant flowers next to the public mural and childrens activity area where artists of all ages took to the paper and created a colorful mural of their own! It was a fantastic addition to the Home and Patio Show! We hope to be invited back next year. :)
Get into it!
Be a part of the fun by adding your artwork to the public mural!
Jax Chalk Fest is an annual event designed to utilize visual art as the important, practical and powerful communication tool that it is, by awarding scholarships for creativity and financial grants to artists with the help of The Concentric Arts Educational Fund. The Concentric Arts Educational Fund holds dear the belief that art is the foundation for our modern society. It supports, Engineering, Architecture, Manufacturing, Marketing and more. For ideas to grow into something tangible they have to be shared and expressed. Imagine trying to use only words to build a building or only words to describe a prototype for a new product. Everyone who participates is important in helping put art at the center of importance. It is our mission to foster creative thinking, healthy competition, encourage our creative students, celebrate the amazing talent that is here and make Jacksonville a better community by showing that Art Can Support Education. Art makes us smart!
