SMAC Chickens Help Bring Art Programming to North County

Carlsbad CAThere are only a small handful of chicken sculptures left from the original SMAC Chicken Parade of twenty-nine. The remaining unique sculptures are now on exhibit at Homelife Village Realtors located  500 Grand Ave, Carlsbad Village.

The exhibit will run through January 15, 2015. Abstract paintings by Cheryl Ehlers and Andrea JNeene, as well as a series of American pop photography by Cliff Serna are also currently on exhibit. Money raised from each chicken sculpture sold goes to support the San Marcos Arts Council and its mission to “foster and promote an arts environment that enriches the community and envision a culturally exciting and artistically vibrant community wherein all forms of the arts flourish.” Over the last five years the Council has coordinated arts programming such as writing workshops, visual art lessons, professional skills workshops for artists, small-scale murals, and it has offered the knowledge of its Board Members as a resource for other non-profit organizations.

For those looking to get involved, volunteer or make a meaningful donation to the San Marcos Arts Council, please contact Board President, Marilyn Huerta or Chairman, Craig Garcia at sanmarcosartscouncil@gmail.com. chicken-on-parade08
