Abstract

We Talk Chalk - time lapse to celebrate the new UND Art Collections Gallery

In celebration of the new UND Art Collections Gallery at the Empire Arts Center, street artist Melanie Stimmell and her "We Talk Chalk Team" created a three-dimensional image out of chalk. The image showcases UND’s eternal flame, Chester Fritz Library, and a soaring eagle sculpture by Bennett Brien.

During her 14 years as a street painter extraordinaire, Stimmell has been awarded gold medals and first-place awards in prestigious European competitions to become one of the world's most honored street painters. Prior to connecting to "We Talk Chalk," Stimmell spent eight years working as the technical director on the television series South Park.

The public is encouraged to stop by the ally next to the Empire Arts Center and take your picture with the image before it is washed away by rain. While you are there, visit the UND Art Collections Gallery in the Empire Arts Center. The gallery is open Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Empire Arts Center is located at 415 Demers Avenue in downtown Grand Forks.
