In order to prepare for this event, the library asked me to create a chalk art dialogue around the library. I invited printmaker, Brittany Hill, to help me with this multi-week project.
This past Wednesday we tackled the first area with - who knew? - spray chalk! We used regular chalk also for details, but the spray chalk was really fun, offering fast coverage, intense colors and the opportunity to make stencils.
For this first area we chose a line from "Borderbus"
We are everything hermana
Because we come from everything.
-Juan Felipe Herrera
If you are in the area, stop by and see the chalk drawings evolve each week.
