I'm excited to confirm I will be working with Safe Haven Family Shelter, their friends at HCA and residents to create an interactive mural art experience in late October 2014. The mural will bring to life a space around the one-year-old building in downtown Nashville and will be based on what Safe Haven means to the community!
I have a few proposals out for other opportunities, so please keep your fingers crossed for me on those projects...of which, I WOULD LOVE to do ALL of them!
I have launched a GoFundMe campaign to build a unique artist residency with two tiny homes. I could really use your support to make this dream a reality. Visit my campaign here.
ChicNhair: Hubcaps & Helmets at the University School of Nashville will close on October 10th. Please go buy and grab your favorite before it is gone! Like Edie Maney who bought a set of handle bars with a hand-crafted horn which she plans to use as a dinner bell!
I'm also excited to be working with GoodJobPerks and Qualifacts on some creative professional development that will culminate in 3 pieces being permanently installed within the company.
My art has been included in the exhibition titled Second Time Around, Hubcap As Art, and it continues at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley until March 1, 2015. More about the exhibition here.
Thanks to Mail Art curator Jason Brown, my work is now part of the Vanderbilt Library Special Collections.
Last but not least, I'm so excited about a couple of businesses launching before the year is over and I can't wait to tell you ALL about it!

ChicNhair: Hubcaps and Helmets September 8-October 10, 2014
Reception Friday, September 12, 2014 TIME: 5-7 pm
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 6, 2014)—The University School of Nashville (USN) presentsChicNhair: Hubcaps and Helmets, an exhibition of community art celebrating alternative transportation and collaboration will be on display in USN’s gallery from September 8 through October 10, 2014.Andee will exhibit repurposed hubcaps and artist designed bicycle helmets celebrating Nashville’s unique neighborhoods. Andee truly believes in the value of creative voice and expressing ideas on varied surfaces—the exhibition reception will feature the unveiling of a collaborative mural with the students at USN, boom box bicycles created by Vanderbilt University Professor Mark Hosford and his students, Oasis Bike Workshop, as well as prints from Green Fleet’s Bicycle Bus-a project Andee facilitated with Green Fleet and the Arts and Business Council of Nashville.
Andee Rudloff: Hubcaps and Helmets will feature over 40 new works by Andee Rudloff and a 32 foot by 8 foot mural with the students at USN among other items. Andee will work with the teachers and students at USN during the first week of the exhibition to create the mural. The completed mural will be unveiled at the reception on Friday, September 12th. Oasis Bike Workshop's Mobile Bike Shop can be toured at the reception. Vanderbilt University Professor Mark Hosford’s boom box bicycles will perform at 6:00 p.m. at the reception. More about the boom box bikes can be found here.
The Nashville Arts Magazine wrote, “Rudloff believes that we can’t take the art with us once we are gone, so it is important to give away ownership to the greater populace. As metro councilman Peter Westerholm states, Andee brings an unabashed enthusiasm . . . that leads not only to inspiring a vision toward the end result but makes recruits of unintentional bystanders, making us all stakeholders and advocates. Rudloff has the power to spark ideas and creativity in all of us!”

Don't forget to take a moment to celebrate FREEDOM and the flag this Saturday! Catch the speedy painter between 1:06 - 1:12 in this music video.
In Waubeka, Wisconsin, in 1885
Bernard John Cigrand a nineteen
year old school teacher in a one room school placed a 10” 38 star flag
in an inkwell and had his students write essays on what the flag meant
to them. He called June 14th the flag’s birthday. Stony Hill School is
now a historical site. From that day on
Bernard J. Cigrand dedicated
himself to inspire not only his students but also all Americans in the
real meaning and majesty of our flag.
During the month of April and/or while supplies last, andee will celebrate with a sale of prints! Let me know which one you are interested in, if you need shipping and I will let you know the price. All proceeds of the sale of the prints will benefit various charities...so buy one of each!
With much consideration, I have resigned as the Education & Visual Arts Director of the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC). I
want to thank south central Kentucky for the wonderful opportunity to serve the community. I will take many positive
memories with me. I look forward to serving the community in the future and will always call Kentucky my home.
