Northglenn Arts is proud to partner with Chicano Humanities & Arts Council (CHAC) on Northglenn’s Parsons Theatre Gallery Wall. CHAC is an inclusive community of all creatives that are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, educating, and reflecting the essence of Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x, and other multicultural/multiracial communities. Northglenn Arts works to provide access to the arts for all people and have chosen to collaborate with CHAC due to their dedication to inclusivity and powerful storytelling.
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
“What is Street Art?”
Street Art is a form of artwork that is in public spaces. The most common place to find street art is on walls like the sides of buildings, billboards, and other flat surfaces that can be easily viewed. In addition to walls, artists utilize sidewalks, tunnels, windows, and even buses.
Street art is also known as guerrilla art, graffiti, urban art, and independent art. It can be used to advertise businesses, spread socio-political messages, or just bring joy and color to different spaces. It’s expanded beyond just public places now. This exhibit allows local CHAC artists to express themselves on canvas in a gallery!
We all have thoughts on what we believe that is important to us in this life and anyone can be a street artist. We must believe in ourselves that we can do it!!
