Coordinator and chalk artist extraordinaire, Jennifer Chaparro tells The Rickie Report, “It’s the first time we’ve done it here (or anywhere in South Florida). We want kids and families to come and fill in the giant peace sign, and chalk images of what peace means to them. The national and world wide reaching organization that is run by a fellow chalk/streetpainting friend of mine, John Aaron. Chalk is a great way to get kids involved in thinking about peace on a local and global level”.

 

Jennifer goes on to say, “We’d like groups to apply, but individuals and families can show up without an application, and as long as we have chalk and space, they can participate! It’s free and we will have chalk available, but we recommend they bring knee pads, hand wipes, carpet to sit on, water and their own chalk if they want. People can come and go at any time, but it will probably be cooler in the morning. There is no rain date, but we’ll try, even if it’s lightly raining in the morning, and hope for a nice sunny and cool day”.

 

 

 

 

 

What is CHALK4PEACE?

Chalk4Peace is the global chalk art project about peace. We’re celebrating our twelfth year as a worldwide event. CHALK4PEACE, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization.

We’ve had more than 1000 events in 50 countries and have covered more than 10 miles of pavement with messages and visions of peace in sidewalk chalk. We believe in “Drawing the World Together…”

CHALK4PEACE was part of the Student Peace Day Observance at the United Nations in New York last fall to honor the International Day of Peace.

Our goal: ONE MILLION artists chalking 4 peace at the same time…

 

From its beginnings in 2003 in Arlington, VA, as a Sunday sidewalk chalk project for children, CHALK4PEACE has been recognized and funded by the Arlington Arts Commission, the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities, the DC Mayor’s Office, the Humanities Project of Arlington, Whole Foods Markets, the CSC Invitational Cycling Classic, the Boulder Arts Commission, the Pasadena (CA) Community Foundation, UNICEF, the Clown and Clown Festival (Monte San Giusto, IT), the Gooden School, Beach E.S., Berkeley Earth Day, and hundreds of peace-minded individuals from around the world.

CHALK4PEACE has grown through the efforts of hundreds of events organizers, teachers, parents, community outreach coordinators, libraries, arts centers and other peace minded individuals and organizations.

CHALK4PEACE is not encouraged as an anti-war demonstration; rather, it is a Pro-Peace creative presentation for young artists of all ages.

 

The campaign to make CHALK4PEACE worldwide began on July 16, 2005, the day after the first CHALK4PEACE event at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC. John Aaron, the Global Project Founder of CHALK4PEACE and chalk events coordinator, began a print and email campaign, sending out more than 5,000 personalized emails and 6,000 full color brochures about CHALK4PEACE for 2005-6.  The global campaign spread coast to coast across the United States, to Cape Town, South Africa and in places in Europe.

 

 

CHALK4PEACE Mission Statement:

– To promote the arts by coordinating assemblies of young artists of all ages to draw their vision of peace in public and private spaces with sidewalk chalk as a scheduled worldwide event;

-To advocate for peace in a non-partisan manner such that all people may share their visions and messages of peace without regard to their nationality, ethnicity, or political beliefs;

– To encourage relationships between municipalities and artists so that communities around the world become united in supporting the expression of peace.

Get Ready For World Wide Knit In Public Day On June 10th! Fantastic Fibers Miami Invites All Fiber Artists To Participate!

Pamela Palma of Fantastic Fibers Miami has a goal of making the world a better place, one thread at a time!  She invites all fiber artists (knitting, weaving, stitching, crochet,fabric painting, dyeing, felting, mixed media, etc) to join in World Wide Knit In Public Day (WWKIP DAY) at a Free gathering in Miami on June 10th. WWKIP DAY is unique, in that it’s the largest knitter run event in the world. Each local event is put together by a volunteer or a group of volunteers.  The Rickie Report shares a short history of WWKIP DAY and how to RSVP for the Miami meet-up at the Perez Museum.  We hope you will share this with fiber friends world wide so they can make their own connections! This event is Free and Open to all ages!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday,  June 10th

Noon – 5pm

Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM)

 

1103 Biscayne Blvd.      Miami, FL 33132

 

FREE, BUT PLEASE 

RSVP: Pamela Palma   786.897.8856

Open to the public: Hang out, knit, see some art, make new friends, bond over yarn.

 

 

World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Knitting is such a solitary act that it’s easy to knit alone somewhere and sink into your work without thinking about all the other knitters out there. Neighbors could spend all their lives never knowing that the other knits. This a specific day to get out of your house and go to a local event (with your knitting in tow) just for you and people like you. Who knows you might even bump into your neighbor! Consider this a spark, to ignite a fire; getting all of the closeted knitters out into fresh air.

 

WHAT IS A “KIP”?

A KIP is a Knitter In Public!

Astrid Salling from Copenhagen, Denmark – organizer of WWKIPDAY since 2011.

 

THE NUMBER OF KIPS AND COUNTRIES INVOLVED IN 2016:

Total KIPs around the world was 1015 !!

…And 57 Countries were involved !!

 

In Miami, at the Perez Museum, people were knitting, crocheting, felting, making lace and weaving (2016).

 

In January, 2016 Pamela Palma, a Miami-based fiber artist, launched Fantastic Fibers Miami for the purpose of creating community. She tells The Rickie Report, “We are a diverse group of serious textile artists making the world a better place, one thread at a time. We work in harmony to bring awareness of the myriad forms of fiber art as well as the historical and contemporary importance of textiles, to South Florida audiences. Through our programs, projects, and events, guild members are building bodies of work for future exhibitions. We welcome opportunities to show our work”.

 

Then they yarn bombed one of the chairs. Fun!

 

Learn to knit ~ create decorative fabric for our two upcoming Yarn Bombing events:

Saturday October 28 from 12 – 5 we will Yarn Bomb Omni Park, in downtown Miami in collaboration with PAMM’s education team. Free! Food trucks will be on site.

Friday January 26, 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, in conjunction with Jazz at MoCA and their education programs, we will yarn bomb the building columns on 123rd Street.

for details and application

Or  Call Resource Depot at 561-882-0090

The event encourages people to create art from reused, excess, found objects, or about-to-be-discarded materials from Resource Depot’s expansive warehouse. Some of the items the artists can create with include paper, cardboard, wood, rubber, fabric, plastic, metal, bottle caps and Styrofoam. The goal is to create awareness and promote activism within the local community and especially to the younger generations by spreading the idea that yesterday’s rubbish can be transformed into today’s art.

 

 

 

ResourceDepotGuerilla Head Art

“Guerrilla Head Art”

 

The main purpose for creative events such as Guerilla A.R.T. is to enhance education and appreciation of the arts and their impact on society. Overall, the concept is to preserve the environment by saving reusable materials from the landfill and improve humanity’s relationship with the natural world.

 

 

 

 

Also added to the event for this round: a local Artisan Village for your shopping pleasure. Resource Depot is still currently looking for vendors with handmade (environmentally-sustainable a plus) products to sell.  For more information about joining the Artisan Village please email or call Jennifer O’Brien at jobrien@resourcedepot.net and 561-882-0090.

 

ResourceDepotCompetition Area

Resource Depot Competition Area

 

 

 

This is how the event goes: each round contestants will channel their inner “MacGyvers”, out-crafting each other using Resource Depot’s repurposed materials and their own wits, creativity, and skills. Teams will be given materials normally considered trash (like things from the recycling bin), and some tools to work with (tape, glue, etc.). Each team’s challenge is to transform these reusable items into artistic creations on-site during different timed challenges during the event.

 

 

Autum Team

Autumn Skye Tattoo Team

 

 

 

 

Here are the detailed Challenge Rules for those crafty creative types out there who would like to participate:

 

Challenge Rules:

• Two artist teams will randomly be paired against each other (head-to-head), with the winners of the semi-final round facing off in the final challenge. The first rounds will be 15-20 minutes in length, with the final challenge being 30-40 minutes.
• Artists will all receive their challenge simultaneously at the start of their head-to-head competition.
• Artwork must be created with the materials and tools supplied by Resource Depot, which will include ordinarily disposable items such as, but not limited to, materials such as paper, cardboard, wood, rubber, fabric, plastic, metal, bottle caps and Styrofoam. Tools may include such items as glue/glue guns, tape, staplers and other fasteners, scissors and other cutting instruments. Chosen materials for each challenge will not be revealed until the challenge begins.
• Each artist team is allowed to bring one “secret weapon” to the competition which could be cool reusable material or crafting tool and is allowed one bribe to the judges which can be a creative object but not money (and value not to exceed $50).
• At the end of the allotted time, artwork must be display ready and safe for viewing to be considered for judging. Artwork must be an original piece completed solely by the team using only materials provided and is encouraged to be whimsical, unusual, wild, curious or personally significant. Teams should be prepared to “sell”/explain their creation to the judges to receive the highest score—hint…storytelling is key part of the creative process and presentation.
• For all challenges, the artwork must be socially appropriate and acceptable. This means that artwork cannot be of any sexual nature; it should not contained any drug paraphernalia, nor be of violence or overtly gruesome in nature.
• Resource Depot and The Brewhouse Gallery reserve the right to display, publish and make the work available to the public via photo/video or otherwise. Artwork created in the contest may not be returned.
Celebrity judges will be on hand to rate projects on artistic merit, technique, and utility. And Resource Depot is thrilled to have back Tyson from the Gater 98.7FM as star MC for the night. Categories to complete for include:
• Most Creative
• Best Transformation of Raw Material to Art
• Thematic Impact: How does the piece reflect back to the reduce/reuse/recycle mission

 

The panel of three local “celebrity” judges (yet to be disclosed-stay tuned on the Resource Depot website for the latest updates!) will be on hand to help judge the entries.

 

 

 

ResourceDepotGuerilla Ladies I

Guerilla Ladies Team

 

 

 

 

In the first round of this competition that took place in September 2015, the teams had members that consisted of people from all walks of life: tattoo artists, painters, home schooling mothers, surfers, social workers, and teachers. As you can see ANYONE can get in on the fun and is encouraged to do so. The winner that evening received a $100 gift certificate to The Brewhouse Gallery. Resource Depot is now accepting applications for the next set of teams to take on these challenges during Round Two this January 9th.

 

 

 

Save the date and get ready to grab a beer, and get a front row seat for the extreme crafting at The Brewhouse Gallery, 720 Park Ave, Lake Park, and watch the glitter fly. The event is FREE for the public, however, we hope you will patronize The Brewhouse Gallery as a percentage of the proceeds from the evening benefit the non-profit Resource Depot.

 

 

 

 

 

Derby Girls Guerilla Event

Derby Girls Team

 

 

 

Resource Depot is a center for creative reuse that collects all the things that nobody wants anymore and gives them to those who can use them. This is done through mostly through memberships. But more than just collecting and distributing upcycled items, they also teach amazing ways to put all these items to use at home, in the classroom or in a business. This is accomplished by offering field trips, summer camp, in-house workshops, and outreach programs. At Resource Depot they believe in education through imagination, and creating a sustainable future starting with the surrounding community.

NATALIE  LEVINE

"La Dee Da" by Natalie Levine

                       “La Dee Da” by Natalie Levine

 

Natalie Levine’s “Botanicals” series is a charming new genre that captures and embraces the viewer’s imagination through enticing elements of mixed media collages of fantasy, color and texture. These whimsical and engaging works are an intuitive combination of painting and collage that brings together both real and imagined elements designed to lead the viewer on a journey of discovery, and enchantment.

 

"Spring Dance" by Natalie Levine

                  “Spring Dance” by Natalie Levine

 

 

Levine has enjoyed a successful 30-year career as a fine artist and earned many accolades for her work. Her style has been described as both Impressionistic and Realistic, successfully combining the light and color of the Impressionists’ paintings while still maintaining the detail and reality of the late 19th century Realists.  In addition to her Botanicals series, a selection of Levine’s landscapes will also be on display.

Nothing gives Cara more pleasure than seeing someone wear one of her pieces. Each piece is made with love and colors sing a song of timeless wearability. Cara’s mother is a portrait oil painter and her father, a retired dentist makes amazing pictures from tiny postage stamps. The thread of artistic ability runs through Cara’s family and she embraces the joy that comes from her hands.
