Everyone is aware of how the COVID-19 pandemic has created a challenging environment for particularly self-employed and small businesses. That is also true for the arts and culture sectors.
As the Chelsea SculptureWalk wraps up the 2019-20 season, you have an opportunity to help the participating artists by purchasing a world-class outdoor sculpture at very affordable prices. Many of the Artists are open to negotiable prices and payment options that can make the sculpture a fixture in your home, garden, or office environment.
70% of the proceeds go directly to the Artists with the remainder going toward the continuation of SculptureWalk in Chelsea. Please contact Crystal Scott, (email: firstname.lastname@example.org., phone number 586 291 8007) Visual Arts and Exhibition Coordinator, or visit SculptureWalk to learn more.
Amazing new sculptures for the 2020-21 season of SculptureWalk are coming soon! This will be the 11th year the sculptures will be gracing Chelsea’s streets and parks. Sculptures featuring top regional artists bring free contemporary sculpture to visitors and Chelsea residents. This annual rotating exhibition enhances and enables the cultural and artistic Chelsea City-Brand.
Chelsea Area Festivals and Events (CAFE) revitalized this outdoor art project as part of the visual arts component of its mission. This was accomplished with community support from the City of Chelsea, Chelsea Downtown Development Authority, Chelsea District Library, Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce, generous sponsors, and a mini-grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Minigrant Program. CAFE did not receive a grant for the upcoming year, leaving a funding gap.
Sponsors for the 2019-20 SculptureWalk season are: Chelsea District Library (2 sculptures), D&B Strategic Marketing, Rick Eder Agency – Farm Bureau Insurance, LAFCU – Your Credit Union for Life, La Maison, Live in Balance Consulting, O&W / Atwater Brewing, Rumpus Room, Secret Crisis Comics, Silver Maples of Chelsea, Stieper & Brust Orthodontics, and Surelutions,
Chelsea Area Festivals & Events is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that enriches Chelsea and the surrounding communities by promoting the presentation of and participation in quality performing and visual arts throughout the year. www.chelseafestivals.com.
