The Tobin Art Wall
The Tobin Art Wall is a public art project developed by Joe Greene, The Pearl Street Gallery and The Chelsea Art Walk. We are thrilled to have Internationally known artist and author Caleb Neelon here, donating his time and talent! You can enjoy more of Calebs beautiful work, gracing the walls of the Jordan Boys and Girls Club.
Artist and author Caleb Neelon (SONIK) began his graffiti career like anyone else, but the Cambridge, Massachusetts native took a hard right and caught a flight out of town. Deliberately ignoring the obvious global centers of New York, Los Angeles and London, Caleb painted subject matter close to his heart while making a street presence in places like Kathmandu, Sao Paulo, and Tegucigalpa. Across, around and in between five continents, indoors and out, Caleb has pulled off some unique, colorful and heartfelt work both alongside collaborators like Os Gemeos and Andrew Schoultz, as well as in streets where he is the first foreigner let alone street painter to wander in quite some time.
Caleb has painted his way around the world, find out more about him here!

New Faces and Cool Places at the 2016 Chelsea Art Walk:
Big thanks to our new partners at Roca and April, for curating a terrific show from her " paint night " class, Tracy Nowicki, Greg Walzak and the Chelsea Senior Center for the beautiful hand-painted tiles formed into a ceramic quilt at the Apollinaire gallery and Damali Vidot for hosting a very successful and creative t shirt design competition. Jordy Brazo used his cinematic expertise to develop an Indy Film Festival for our new "Art in the Park" containers venue, Arnie Jarmak shared some of his historic press photos of Chelsea from the 1970 - 80's and the Boston Printmakers were kind enough to lend us their art. Dan Cortez really rocked the park by producing our new live music and entertainment venue and curatedChelsea High School student show at the Apollinaire. Margaret Carsley hit another home run at the garden with our favorite " Scarecrow Competition " and drumming circle, Playwright Bob Boulrice wrote another award winning original play for the Apollinaire Theatre and the Mystic Brewery hosted mixed media, paintings and photography from the Pearl Street Gallery.
