The 1800 block of South Halsted Street will be taken over for the months of May and June by Project Silly. Project Silly is an art installation by Chicago Artist, Face Painter, and Self Published children’s story author Anna Todaro (ms Anna).
On display will be over 45 18″ X 18″ photographs and paintings of Chicago residents, most of whom attended the April 2015 Second Friday Artwalk. with painted faces making Silly Faces.
In the main showPod at 1843 S Halsted, on both May 8th and June 12th, ms Anna will be offering facepainting for all ages for anyone else who would like to come by to be a part of #projectsilly. Ms Anna will also have original paintings, prints, and copies of her newest board book, SillyFace, available for purchase.
“I love how everyone, every age, color, and shape, is a perfect canvas for face painting. I think that most people, when they think of the south side of Chicago, they forget about the everyday community, the smiling faces, the peace keepers, the moms and grandmothers, the gardens, and the laughter. I really believe in the love that is here in my community and I hope that my art installation will help shine some light on that.” -ms Anna
