The demand for Mark Making’s offering of visual arts education and citizen designed public art has outgrown the capacity of the North Chattanooga studio. They have acquired two neighboring properties in the heart of East Chattanooga’s Glass Street district, where they plan to be operational by spring 2014.
Mark Making’s offices and studio space will be housed at 2510 North Chamberlain Ave. The location at 2501 Glass St. will be available for lease until Mark Making needs more room to grow. New Blue Construction will begin renovations in January.
Mark Making’s mission is to serve and transform communities through creative art making that empowers individuals, with a focus on the underserved. Since the inception in 2009, they have engaged over 1,650 underserved participants in 300 hours of visual arts and civics classes, created 29 site-specific art installations seen daily by an average of 37,000 commuters, and partnered with 56 organizations.
