Chapin Town Logo

CCAL Launches All New Community Art Project

CCAL is excited to announce the kickoff of a very special project.

We invite all artists to take part!

The Crooked Creek Art League wants to shine a light on the vibrant arts community in Chapin and surrounding areas. Toward that end, CCAL is partnering with the Town of Chapin to promote the arts and the town. We have been an active part of the community since we were established in 1995 and hope to have the chance to give back to the town. Through this project, CCAL is seeking artists to create and install public works of art throughout town in conjunction with the 2019 Chapin Labor Day Festival. This annual event, with over 20,000 participants, is the premier event in Chapin each year. It is a wonderful opportunity to show the vital role the arts play in a vibrant community. Artwork will be placed at strategic locations throughout the community including in front of the offices of business sponsors of the event.

We need your support to continue to make a difference for the artists and art in our community. Participation is open to all artists. Each artist will be given a 4 foot primed pre-cut aluminum sculpture in the shape of a sailboat similar to the town logo. All applications will be considered on their merits using a weighted scoring system, and the twelve (12) best applications will be assigned a sculpture to artistically complete. Bonus scoring points will be added to artists that are CCAL members.

People's Choice will be awarded and all completed sculptures will be auctioned off. Artists will receive a stipend to cover material costs and have the chance to earn a percentage of the sale of their artwork through the auction. Come join the fun!!

Applications will be accepted online.
