Michelle Chandra and her exhibit of maze maps at Ironworks Climbing GymFor the entire month of December, you can get your climb on AND check out my complete collection of maze maps at Berkeley Ironworks Climbing Gym

Each month, Berkeley Ironworks features a different local artist. This is my first solo show in the East Bay after having been a participating artist at the Oakland Print Show at Classic Cars West in October.

All 12 of my maze maps are featured, including 2 news maze maps - Berkeley and Alameda, which I designed in November!

The Berkeley maze map starts near Tilden at Grizzly Peak, and ends at Indian Rock Park.

Alameda maze map by Dirt Alley Design

The Alameda maze map starts at Park Street Bridge and ends at Crab Cove.

I mounted each print on maple plywood panels using acrylic matte gel (so great to not mess with glass and frames for the show!)

I have been a fan of climbing since introduced to the sport a little over a year ago (I did my first climb at Ironworks!) 

Climbing was definitely tough in the beginning, and I didn't find my groove with it for a solid three months. Now I enjoy climbing weekly and trying to advance my abilities with each climb.

Climb on!

Michelle ChandraDirt Alley Design was founded just off a dirt alley in San Francisco in December of 2016 by artist Michelle Chandra. Inspired by the beauty of street grids, Michelle invented maze maps in which she transforms street grids into mazes. 

My maze art isn't just decorative art for your home, it's a real puzzle maze you can solve (if you dare!) I think my maze maps are pretty cool, but don't take just my word for it! My maze maps have been featured in LaughingSquidThe Creator's Project, Untapped Cities and UpOutSF.
