In 2011, ARTrails and Chehalis Community Renaissance Team formed the Chehalis Storefront Art Project, a joint effort to place artists and short- and long-term exhibits in empty Chehalis area storefronts to demonstrate Chehalis' commitment to the arts, while beautifying downtown areas and allowing artists a unique canvas.
