"Color Eau Claire" Book Launch, April 25

Posted: April 18, 2017

A new adult coloring book titled "Color Eau Claire," featuring 40 images of local places, will be released at a reception from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25 at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire's scenic Carson Park. At 7:00 p.m., the book's creator and illustrator Patricia A. Hawkenson will give a book talk and presentation of images to local businesses featured in the book, published by Expressive Domain, LLC. The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.

The Chippewa Valley Museum is featured prominently among the 40 images in the book, with one image of the front of the museum, a second image of the Sunnyview School and Anderson Log House located on the museum grounds, and a third image of the museum-owned Schlegelmilch House in downtown Eau Claire. Other iconic places in the book include Phoenix Park, The Oxbow Hotel, City Hall, UW-Eau Claire's Schofield Hall, Randall Park, and the Pioneer Block on Water Street. 

"I selected iconic places that I thought many people would recognize and many locations that held special memories for me, like the Chippewa Valley Museum," said Hawkenson.

Attendees of all ages will be welcome to color images from the book at a Coloring Station, and the book will be available for purchase through the museum store. Museum exhibits will be free between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., as always on Tuesdays.
