New mural installed at Chattanooga WorkSpace

An artist’s new mural on Sixth Street is the perfect photo opportunity for locals and tourists visiting the Scenic City.

Kenny Kudulis unveiled his “Chattanooga” mural during an open studio night at Chattanooga WorkSpace last Friday. Instead of using visual representations of the city—such as his recent mural at 2 Sons Kitchen & Market—Kudulis used graphic text to highlight iconic Chattanooga locations.

The idea for this version came from his travels. Kudulis and his wife, Jenifer, spend most of their year traveling to art festivals in major cities.

“In most of those cities, there is usually an awesome and colorful mural that represents that specific city,” he said. “It’s a great spot for locals and tourists alike to take their pics and have a visual representation of the place they are currently inhabiting … something to look cool in front of and share with friends. I wanted that for Chattanooga.”

Locals and tourists will recognize Rock City, the Chattanooga Choo-Choo and an orange version of the word “Tennessee” to represent the Volunteers.

“Who doesn’t love Rock City?” he said. “And the Choo-Choo seems to be the first thing people mention when I tell them I’m from Chattanooga. That song is the fabric of the American consciousness.”

Kudulis also highlights Chattanooga’s nickname—the Scenic City—and offers a tribute to our area code.

“The ‘423’ is hometown pride,” he said. “We moved from New York City two years ago and love it here in Chattanooga. We live in the Southside and love how walkable it is and how fast it’s growing.”

More of Kudulis’ work is available here.

The mural is located at 302 W. Sixth St. in downtown Chattanooga.

Chattanooga WorkSpace hosts an open studio night the first Friday of each month. The next gathering will be Sept. 1.

Hollie Berry — Visual Artist

Hollie Berry started drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil and began painting in oils at the age of eight. Since then, her primary focus has remained on her artistic growth. Whether painting a traditional portrait in oils, sewing paper pages into a sculptural form, or suspending moving books from the ceiling, she seeks to add to the beauty of the world by tapping into her own creativity and that of those around her.

Berry received a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin and studied art and art history abroad in Tuscany, Italy. Her work has been displayed locally at Association for Visual Arts, The River Street Makery, Winder Binder Gallery & Bookstore, ArtSpace Gallery, and on several public streets.

Berry first became enamored with the possibility of book arts in high school when she was introduced to the concept of altered books. She had always been an avid reader so the conjoining of books and art was a natural direction. Soon she learned to create handmade books from the raw materials of paper, thread, boards, and cloth. Now, she and Ellen Simak are co-chairs of Book Arts at the Open Press, where she occasionally teaches book arts workshops.
After moving to Chattanooga, Hollie first made an impression on the local community by creating Dewdles, a series of temporal drawings in the dewy grass of Coolidge Park. These monumental and ephemeral works last only an hour or so before evaporating. Dewdles capture the imaginations of tourists, joggers, and dog walkers who spot them from the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge, as well as internet surfers who stumble across them online.
Recently Hollie has been involved with The McCallie Walls Mural Project, a grant recipient of the MakeWork foundation, completing the twelve by forty five foot outdoor mural Four Horsewomen. She also collaborated with other artists, neighborhood residents, and children to create the community painted mural Tandimals. For her next foray into public art Berry collaborated with her husband, Engineer Rudy Elizondo, to create the interactive installation Book Flock as part of the Open Spaces program coordinated by River City Company. The fusion of art, technology, and viewer participation is something she very much looks forward to continuing in the future.
Hollie Berry lives in Chattanooga, TN with her husband, two cats, and too many books.
