Featured Artwork-Springfield Art Fair Community Project

“Spheres of Completion” ¬©Melynda Van Zee

I’m pleased to announce that my painting “Spheres of Completion” will be the featured artwork for the Community Project at the upcoming 57th Springfield, IL  Old Capitol Art Fair on May 19 and 20, 2018. An image of my painting “Spheres of Completion” will be enlarged to 6 ft x 10 ft and then divided into 308 5 in x 5 in squares. Each one of these squares will be painted by the public and adhered to magnetic tiles at the art fair. Then, piece-by-piece the painted squares will be reassembled on a large magnetic board. The completed community project piece will be on display at the Illinois State Museum for the next year and at the 2019 art fair. I’m looking forward to seeing cooperation and creativity in action as festival goers participate in this interactive project by painting their very own section of the finished piece! Come join the fun this Saturday, May 19 from 10am-5pm and Sunday, May 20 from 10-4pm.

In celebration of the community project at the Old Capitol Art Fair, I’ve created a series of mini-works inspired by the original painting “Spheres of Completion”. Stop by Booth #95 to see the original “Spheres of Completion” painting and see the inspired mini-works in a similar rainbow color palette which will be available for purchase. There will be so much color for everyone to enjoy!
