The Beer Wine Food committee is excited to bring art to the festival this year. Building on the previous success of Clifton’s StreetScape for 10 years, Kip Eagan has eagerly jumped on board with Beer Wine Food to duplicate its success in Wyoming. Kip, an independent curator, is no stranger to multiple ArtWorks’ projects around the city focusing on making art more accessible. Groups of artists will recreate masterpieces on the festival’s streets while attendees can watch art in action.
There will also be an opportunity for children to add their mark on a masterpiece.
All participating children will receive a free chip wheelie from Graeter’s!
Charity founder Brooke Desserich says, “We really feel like this addition of street chalk art will not only help us to bring art into our neighborhoods, but also serves as a celebration of our roots when the community of Wyoming founded The Cure Starts Now through selling my daughter Elena’s artwork for donations to cancer research. I can’t think of a better location to kick off this new venture for our charity.”
