Thank you to Chad Mize for joining us for Immersive Conversations!
To many of us in the St. Pete area, Chad Mize is a living legend and having him part of our inaugural Fairgrounds St. Pete installation makes our glitter shine a little brighter. His work balances humor and playfulness with messages that comment on contemporary culture in a way that is accessible and appealing to the viewer.
With an entrepreneurial spirit on par with our founders, Chad has built a gallery that is more than a space to view art. It’s a cultural touchpoint for St. Pete that fosters a community of artists and creators looking to learn from their peers. Even throughout the tumultuous year 2020, he continued to find ways to host exhibits and events that kept fellow artists working and uplifted the public. Much like his work, Chad’s efforts to cultivate a culture of creativity in St. Pete radiate happiness and joy and truly embodies everything that Fairgrounds St. Pete believes in.
As a Fairgrounds St. Pete Artist, his Entrance Doodle Wall greets guests as they arrive foreshadowing the exciting narrative that awaits them. His iconic doodles in bright, poppy, Fairgrounds inspired colors, inspire a sense of cheer and adventure and build anticipation for the installation as a whole. A second Exit Doodle Wall caps off the experience, transitioning Fairgrounds visitors back to reality.
Walking around the city you are never far from one of his delightful doodle murals or someone wearing his signature Chizzy “Paris, London, Tokyo, St. Pete” World Tour shirts. Which is why we are thrilled to announce that in collaboration with Fairgrounds St. Pete, Chad has created a vibrant Fairgrounds St. Pete edition of the quintessential Mize designed World Tour tee exclusively for the Fairgrounds St. Pete Shop!
Debuting on Immersive Conversations this special merchandise partnership with Chad Mize brings a new spin on a local favorite with every purchase helping to ensure Mize Gallery and Fairgrounds St. Pete are able to provide a platform for artists to showcase their work for years to come.
