CCAL is excited to announce the kickoff of an all new Community Art project: "The Art of Living in Chapin".
Members of CCAL have started work on this project. We love our Community and because "A Painting is Worth a Thousand Words", over the coming months we will be painting a beautiful large scale mural inside Crooked Creek Park's recreation building depicting life in the greater Chapin area.
This project is special to us as it is being done in honor of the 25th anniversary of both CCAL and our host site, namesake and all around great partner: Crooked Creek Park (CCP). The Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission (ICRC) is also celebrating its 50th anniversary. It's a big year! To commemorate and celebrate their joint efforts to serve the greater Chapin community, ICRC has asked CCAL to paint a large scale mural within CCP. The mural will be reflective of life in the greater Chapin area and involve the 2019 Summer Safari Kids. The mural will span two 17’ wide walls at the CCP Recreation Building which is CCAL’s home base and a central gathering point for people of all ages in a wide range of activities. CCP is a dynamic location which averages approximately 1,500 visitors per day and hosts numerous daily activities targeting all ages, genders, races and socioeconomic groups including handicapped accessibility. Its a great place to add a little more artistic beauty!
Watch for progress updates on our social media feeds.
The public is invited to a dedication ceremony to be held on Tuesday, February 25. In addition to viewing the artistry of the mural itself, the public will be invited to engage with the artwork by participating in a “scavenger hunt” within the mural. Visitors will also be invited to write/leave Post it note comments on a “What does it mean to you wall?”
The Crooked Creek Art League (CCAL) is located in Chapin, South Carolina. We have over 120 members, including painters of all mediums, photographers, sculptors and mixed media artists. All are welcome. CCAL is chartered as a non-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of federal tax law. We are a fully non-profit dynamic organization and depend on our members, business partners and donors to help us continue to grow the visual arts in our area in many varied ways. We provide on-location art exhibits at businesses, provide associate juror training, host an annual juried art show and, occasionally, provide arts supply funding to our local schools.
