Art project entitled Rise Up Chatt.

Artist,Charlie Brouwer.

Hundreds of ladders are connected by cable ties for this amazing work of art.It was built by the artist Charlie Brouwer and the wants each ladder to represent the hopes and dreams of its owner. By connecting the ladders, the community supports each other as they work together. This photo is only part of the massive project.The ladders are all borrowed and have tags identifying the owners.This exhibit will only last for one month .At the end of the month,the ladders will be returned to the owners or they can donate them to Habitat For Humanity of Chatt. This project is the vision of artist Charlie Brouwer.On a sign in front of the exhibit,his words read....."Community exists when each member realizes that their own hopes and dreams depend on and are tied to everyone else's" - Charlie Brouwer
