Murals with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee

The Bonnaroo Works Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee awarded Big Brothers Big Sisters a grant to fund the creation and painting of two murals sharing the spirit and mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Regional artist Andee Rudloff worked with the youth and their mentors to gather drawings and ideas for the two murals. She created the mural design and a group of Big Brothers Big Sisters participants painted and completed them.  The murals will be displayed in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee main office on 1704 Charlotte Avenue, Nashville.

For the past five years, The Bonnaroo Works Fund has supported regional and national organizations with the mission of making communities healthy in areas of the arts, education, and environmental sustainability, with the goal of local reinvestment and asset building for the communities where they live, work, and play.

Providing services to all of Middle Tennessee, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee served 1,513 children in 2014. 

Enjoy the video created by Halle Rudloff of the process here.

Dragon-Hillsboro Village success

Located across the street from the Belcourt Theatre with support from Vanderbilt University and the Hillsboro-West End Neighborhood Association, the mural features new signage lettering and new colors on the dragon. The refresh looks contemporary but both the colors and the lettering are actually Art Deco era meaning the dragon sports colors that were popular in 1920, which is the year Hillsboro Village was established, and the year women earned the right to vote...a bright year for pioneers! #dostuff

Gearing up for Summer 2015

So many good things to share about the upcoming summer of art and happenings. Yesterday, I was part of a unique furniture show at the Idea Hatchery, curated by Julie Sola and nearly sold out everything I had to share....Thank you!

I will be the artist-in-residence at Harpeth Hall this week in Nashville, TN, working with several educators and many students on a 20ft by 5ft mural.  I will prepare the Final Report for the Cumberland View Community Mural with Robert Churchwell Museum Magnet Elementary supported in part by Thrive funds from #artsnashville MetroArts...and happy to report the fees covered expenses thankfully!

Pictured above Andee with Robert Churchwell, Jr.

Next week I will be presenting artists to the Tanne Foundation in New Hampshire and hope to see some artists in the region receive much needed support to continue their important work.

I look forward to spending the summer teaching, exhibiting, painting and serving as a juror for a few professional art centers and exhibitions balanced with lots of stand-up paddleboarding. Updates to come!

Don't forget about the EXCITING international exhibition opportunity at the National Corvette Museum, Car Part Art! I will be serving as guest curator for Car Part Art which opens in September 2015. Entry applications and pre-approval deadline is July 31, 2015. All work will be received during the month of August 2015. Do not miss this opportunity:
