June 8th – World Oceans Day – Navy Pier and Shedd team up with Chicago Chalk Champ, Shaun Hays

Navy Pier and Shedd Aquarium Join Forces with Chicago Chalk Champ, Shaun Hays, to celebrate World Oceans Day (June 8th) with a pop-up style Chalk Art Fest in Polk Brothers Park. Patrons tried their hand at sidewalk chalk for free and added their art to the chalk board kiosk when they committed to #sheddthestraw in 2017!

Did you know that single-use plastic straws are a bigger ocean pollutant than disposable water bottles?? I had no idea. I think it is good to take care of our home, so I am pledging to #sheddthestraw, and on April 8th I continued my support of Shedd Aquarium’s efforts by chalking in Polk Brothers Park in front of Navy Pier, Chicago to help Shedd Aquarium spread the word.  (Edit: June 8th at Navy Pier – Again!!)

Thank you to all who came out to help us chalk up the Polk Brothers Park with sea life and love! Kathleen Roling joined #chicagochalkchamp, to render some magnificent animals affected by the plastics in our oceans. I had done this twice already this year: once here at Polk Brothers PArk and a second time between the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum on Earth Day. 

Visitors to each location participated in the chalk artwork and brought their own creativity to help us #sheddthestraw on #earthday (and now, #WorldOceansDay ) with some #chicagopublicart featuring the #chicagochalkchamp. “

Live CHAMP Events – Open To The Public

JOIN ME AT A LIVE EVENT!

Everywhere I go, people are always asking: “where can I see some of your works or hear you speak? ”

Well, my art work is often temporary or performance based and often it is for private groups (not open for the public to attend). This makes it difficult or impossible for many to meet up with me on site. I am changing this somewhat in 2015-2016:

INTRODUCING: THE CHAMP LIVE EVENTS – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
