University of Akron's Art Bomb Brigade to unveil its second mural at Chill
The Art Bomb Brigade, a community arts program run by the University of Akron's Myer's School of Art, will unveil its second mural at Chill, Akron's gourmet ice cream shop. AKRON, Ohio -- The University of Akron's Art Bomb Brigade is putting the finishing touches on an ultra contemporary mural at Chill, Akron's new gourmet ice cream shop. The work will be unveiled Sunday, Sept. 11, at 11 a.m. during the Akron Farm and Flea Market at 51 East Market and Maiden Lane in Akron. The market runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event features music by local musicians ZACH and the Fourons. Local food, fare and craft vendors will also be available. The Chill mural is being painted by university alumni artists Rosa Maille, Matt Miller, David Pluck, Leah Prischak, Francisca Ugalde and Ryan Weiss. The artists are working with the illustrator and skateboarder, Jay Croft, an Akron native. Croft is a longtime zine creator, blogger, painter and designer, as well as the visual merchandiser for VANS "OFF THE WALL" shoes. "Art Bomb works to bring together Akronites, teachers, artist, and community organizations to create positive change in our city," said Art Bomb director and university associate professor of art education, Elisa Gargarella, in a news release. "Art Bomb serves as a model to the region for how public art can transform communities into more sustainable, more creative, more economically rich and more culturally engaged places to live and work." Art Bomb is a community arts program run by the university's Myers School of Art. The group was awarded a 2016 Knight Arts Challenge to impact the community through murals created by art students, university alumni and local artists. Art Bomb's first major mural was created at the Downtown Akron Laundromat on South Main Street this past summer.
