Working directly with local artists, architects, poets, writers, and historians, Charlottesville Parks & Rec campers embarked on three walks exploring different segments of Monticello Road. These walks took place in a variety of locations, from Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello to places in the Belmont neighborhood including Lazy Daisy Ceramics, the Virginia Institute for the Blind, Mas Tapas, and the so-called Belmont Mansion. Campers made drawings based on their own observations and information from guest speakers at every opportunity.
The journey ended at the Community Chalkboard on the Downtown Mall on July 12th. There, the campers’ sketches coalesced with the collaborative creation of a mural. Find out more about the mural from NBC29 and C-Ville Weekly.
If you missed the mural-making on the Community Chalkboard last month, you can see it now in this fun time-lapse video created by Laura Aimone.
A Storyline 2012 exhibition will take place at the CitySpace Gallery in September with an opening reception on Friday, September 7, 2012 from 5:30-7:00pm.
