Cuyahoga Falls High School 2020 graduate and Girl Scout Gold Award candidate Kathryn Spinner's Cuyahoga Falls Postcard Project will be on display through the windows of the Downtown Cuyahoga Falls Pavilion at 2085 Front Street, beginning May 23.
The public is invited to stroll by any time between May 23 and June 1 to catch the exhibit from outside the Pavilion.
The Cuyahoga Falls Postcard Project is a community art project which includes over 300 postcards of current or past residents' favorite Cuyahoga Falls memories. The project was planned to be installed at the Cuyahoga Falls All City Art Walk in April and is now available for the community to enjoy while social distancing. It is requested that viewers wear masks and come back to view another time if there are several other people viewing. The installment will be up through June 1. For those unable to leave home, the display of the more than 320 postcards will also be available on Instagram at @cfpostcard and on Facebook at Cuyahoga Falls Postcard Project.
The project is made possible due to the support of the Downtown Cuyahoga Falls Partnership, the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center, Collide-Cuyahoga Falls, and the Cuyahoga Falls Parks and Recreation Department. Kathryn would also like to thank her CFHS art teacher and advisor Jennifer Schulman.
Chalk It Up: Downtown Cuyahoga Falls
The DTCF Partnership, the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center, and Collide are asking artists to help "Chalk It Up" in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls this July. With the inaugural Chalk the Block Festival’s postponement to summer of 2021, these organizations found an alternative to bring vibrancy through art to DTCF. So, once a week in the month of July, a new chalk mural will appear in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls. Four local artists will be commissioned to bring color, creativity, and excitement to downtown with temporary "Banksy-style" murals. It will be up to the community to discover where they are and catch them while they last! The Cuyahoga Valley Art Center will also be providing free chalk to community members who are inspired by the artists and would like to chalk on the sidewalks in Downtown or near their homes.
More details and applications for artists interested in applying can be found at www.downtowncf.com/chalkitup.
