A community with a rich agricultural history, Hudsonville has seen many changes in the last few years. We continue to add more and more people to our community – people with an endless variety of backgrounds and origins, talents and passions. We are a community with compelling stories to tell, and art, in all its variations, is how we tell them.
Hudsonville is home to artisans and artists, and to people learning news ways of expression. Whether through paint or movement, words or clay, we seek to connect to each other and to the larger world in compelling ways, ways that in turn shape our experiences and those of the people around us.
We love to see expressions of all kinds – colorful, compelling, lighthearted or profound – we believe they make this community a better place to live, so we try to offer a variety of ways that people around us can learn about, participate in, and experience art. We hope you’ll join us.
It was a beautiful sunny day and as chalk dust floated in the air, one small artist put the final touches on a blue and pink tractor.
On Saturday, July 28, tons of people came out to join the Hudsonville Arts Council at the Sidewalk Chalk Madness which was hosted by RE/MAX Grand Valley. Overall, about 40 people came out to the event to let their imaginations run free. One of the spectators at the event stated, “It’s so amazing to see people from all around, come together and just have a great time with one another. By watching people participate in the event, you can’t help but smile. To see people of all ages getting into their creations, it’s just spectacular! We really do live in a great community.”
The Sidewalk Chalk Madness was part of the Discover Hudsonville Days, which over all turned out to be a great success! The Hudsonville Arts Council would like to thank Crème Curls Bakery and McDonalds, who sponsored the event. And would also like to thank everyone who came to and supported the event!
