It was hard work trying to get the chalkboard into the cabin.
At this point, I really didn't think they could do it.
They ended up taking off one of the legs and then reattaching it.
My side before I started.
A long afternoon of drawing on the board.
With Huginn Arason the artist who arranged this project.
The graffiti artist's side unfinished.
And then finished.
A view where you can see both sides at once.
His idea was to combine graffiti artists with quiltmakers. An elaborate chalkboard was constructed. The graffiti artist was to draw a word that begins with re on one side and also have a quilter draw block designs on the other side. It will be an ongoing display, drawings erased and then redraw by other artists. I volunteered to do the first quilt design for opening night. What an experience! I had never really drawn much on a chalkboard before. I choose not to use a ruler, rather draw the quilt patterns freehand. I really haven't had a drawing type class since probably Jr. High. The project was well received at the opening reception last night! I was pleased to be a part of the project.
