The Arts "Trail Through Chapin" - CCAL Launches All New Community Art Project


The Arts Trail Through Chapin Logo



CCAL is excited to announce the kickoff of a very special new community art project



We invite all artists to take part!






Crooked Creek Art League (CCAL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit consisting of over 100 artists from Chapin and the surrounding lake communities. We are once again partnering with the Town of Chapin to create some exciting public art with the goal of shining a light on the vibrant arts scene in Chapin and surrounding lake communities. The concept for the project – artfully adorned trail markers- began as a way to showcase the Chapin Nature Trail that is being developed on the acreage surrounding Town Hall. This simple concept has evolved into “The Arts Trail through Chapin” - a highly visible multi-part public art display that will feature a community scavenger hunt and auction culminating at the 2021 Chapin Labor Day Festival.

Located in Chapin, South Carolina, CCAL’s members, include painters of all mediums, photographers, sculptors and mixed media artists. All are welcome. 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. CCAL has been an active part of the community since we were established in 1995 and love the chance to give back to the town. Through this project, CCAL will assign artists from across the community to create public works of art intended for display throughout town. The art will consist of creatively designed aluminum posts topped with aluminum sailboats reminiscent of the larger sailboats rolled out in the League’s 2019 project “The Arts Sail into Chapin.” In conjunction with the 2021 Chapin Labor Day Festival, which draws over 20,000 visitors each year, this project is a wonderful opportunity to show the vital role the arts play in our thriving community. A small number of trail markers will be installed on the Chapin Nature Trail and others will be auctioned during the Chapin Labor Day Festival. Funds raised from the auction will go towards a larger scale community art project the League is planning for Chapin. The trail markers will be on display at sponsoring businesses for the duration of the Scavenger Hunt from September 1 - 5. After Labor Day, the Trail Markers will become part of a growing "Chapin Arts Trail" which spotlights public art throughout the town.
