• Kalispell Parkline Celebration

    Posted in Blog by Brooke Trout

    Thank you to all who came out to celebrate the grand opening of the linear park and trail in Kalispell! I was so honored to get to be a part of this historic event thanks to Kalico Art Center and The Chamber of Commerce. For those of you who were unable to make it I was asked to create a series of interactive chalk drawings. My concept was to create different animal zones from around the world such as China, The Arctic, Australia and more with critters like alligators, polar bears and giraffes! I wove the drawings together with animal tracks and instructions so passersby could hop skip and jump their way along the trail. I had not had the opportunity to do a chalk drawing in four years so I felt like I was making up for lost time. I have ten years of experience as a chalk artist and previously was asked by the City of Fontana to create a chalk drawing for their Sounds of The Islands Event about ten years ago. I enjoyed the Parkline experience, and it was really cool to be at the ribbon cutting where I got to hear all about our town when the railway first opened and the grand celebration they enjoyed which included roast beef sandwiches for all. I was actually interviewed by two tv stations and a local newspaper. My parents got a kick out of seeing me on tv. I basically just wanted to encourage everyone to get out on the trail and enjoy being in the great outdoors! This is a great way to get out and explore our area and get some sunshine too! Thanks as always for your love and support!
