Adler Planetarium – Eclipse 2017 Summary

 

On August 21st, 2017 North America bore witness to a historic Solar Eclipse and I was privileged to be asked by Adler Planetarium to help them celebrate!

Initially I was told to expect about 10,000 to attend the party and witness my chalk art on the Chicago lakefront, but on last count we were well over the 40,000 mark! It was certainly a wonderful day and the eclipse did not disappoint despite on-and-off clouds all day. We got great participation in my freehand 3D chalk art all day. I made sure to finish it by 11am so we could have the most time for people to pose with this one!

To top it off I had the privilege of chalking with two time Chalk Art Champion, Cole Fasano on not one but TWO pieces.

Tequitta Lucas poses atop another Chicago Chalk Champ 3D piece. I’ll update this space with more photos and video later!

August Outings

If you have trouble reaching me for the next two weeks, please be patient. I may have less connectivity than usual.

Tomorrow, August 3, I will be near Buckingham Fountain drawing as part of the Chicago Lollapalooza festival. I leave immediately for Montana and Wyoming for about a week. On the 10th I leave for Barbados and return home on the 14th.

I hope to continue my connectivity, but, realistically it may take a while to get back to everyone.

Meanwhile, please be sure to leave messages and details of your needs by emailing shaunhays(AT)rocketmail.com

Also come out to see me flex my Chalk Champ muscles Monday, Aug 21 outside of Adler Planetarium in Chicago – eclipse day

Thank you!

New Videos

Some of my favorite moments over the years have been on video!

Would you like to see them? 🙂

*sigh* me too. 😦

I delayed investing in professional grade cameras in order to attend to my own immediate financial needs and tried to get video from pros on location by trading for money off of an event. ROOKIE MOVE for speakers and artists but very necessary at the time.

Many clients, agencies, schools and even an Expo or two have not delivered on promises and contractual agreements to release my videos over the years. In fact I changed my contracts and policies several times to ensure that I would not fall into that situation again. Unfortunately, new problems arose from those policies and I still could not take advantage of marketing coming from an incredible professional video.

Last fall I also decided it was time to stop fighting for old videos. ENOUGH. Everything has changed anyway.

Now I have some new equipment and some initial Editing software bugs to work out but  I’m ready to take this on.

I also need to remove some clutter from my Youtube as i have poorly thought out spontaneous vids from 8 years ago etc.

I’ll post NEW videos here on this site, but also on my YouTube channel and maybe on Vimeo when I’m ready. Subscribers will get special deals and freebie opportunities too!

SEE you soon!

Chicago’s Adler Planetarium Chalk Art Aug 21st 2017

I usually don’t make announcement before an event finalizes the details, but I think you should be notified about this one asap: I am working out details with Adler Planetarium on Chicago’s Lakefront for some amazing Chalk Art Masterpieces!

MONDAY, August 21st will be a very rare Solar Eclipse for us in the U.S. Midwest. We are celebrating with a huge party – so skip work and come on out to enjoy some great music and entertainment that includes the Chicago Chalk Champ, Shaun Hays! I’ll be working on live art throughout the day but Noon will be a great time to get pics of the art.
