Sidewalk Art Comes to Little Falls!!

Captain America in Little Falls

This summer, the children of Little Falls were treated to two instructional classes on creating vivid, 3-D sidewalk chalk art by the nationally renowned graphics artist, Eric Maruscak. The classes took place at the Little Falls Middle School on June 19th, and at Canal Place on July 17th, as part of the Third Thursday events in Little Falls. After the classes, the chidlren, as well as many adults, enjoyed watching Eric create his own special chalk art creations, first of Rocket Racoon and then of Captain America.

Eric is well-known to those who attend the Comic Cons around the nation for his wonderful sidewalk chalk masterpieces of various comic and video game characters! Because he lives in Binghamton, Eric graciously agreed to create some of his work for Little Falls on Third Thursdays this summer.

These events were part of the "Taking it to the Streets for Healthier, Happier Children" initiative, made possible by a generous grant from the Dale Memorial Trust, and sponsored by the Think Local Little Falls Committee, in cooperation with the Little Falls Family YMCA, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts, the City of Little Falls Tourism Committee, the DiamondDawgs, and Van Meter & Van Meter, LLC. This arts program is based on a growing body of scientific research showing that communities that offer arts, entertainment, and recreation are more likely to have healthier children. These studies draw a strong correlation between communities that have made an investment in the happiness of children and communities populated with healthy children. Further, this research suggests that broader participation in art-oriented recreational activities also contributes to the health of children.

For more information on arts activities and art instruction for children and adults, call the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts at 823-0808!

Featured Little Falls Business - Always Treasured

Profile photo

After retiring from a 50 year career in the restaurant business, in June 2006 Siegfried Sprenger decided to open an antique store on Main Street in Little Falls. Woodworking was always his lifelong hobby, and his appreciation for quality work and craftsmanship got him interested in antiques and everyday items of the past.

Siegfried grew up in post-WW2 Germany, where any goods were hard to come by, nothing was thrown away, and everything was repaired. It gives him special satisfaction when he can transform a broken, hopeless piece of furniture into a beautiful object of art.

Always Treasured caters to all people, offering everything from inexpensive used furniture and articles to higher-end antiques and collectibles. If you are looking for a certain article, Siegfried will try to find it for you. He has a loyal local following, and out-of-town dealers stop by regularly. Siegfried also does repairs, refinishing and lamp rewiring.
