Nancy Pochis Bank Art Studio was hired by US Figure Skating to create three chalkboard murals for their 2014 Skate America event at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. The largest wall featured mid 20th century champion skater Dick Button alongside the 2014 ice dance champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White. It also included several quotes by members of the Friends of Figure Skaters as well as the organization’s logo, “From past to present, we are all friends”. The second wall portrayed illustrations of the 2014 bronze medalist US Olympic team. The last wall was designed as a space for “Friends of Figure Skaters” to leave messages to the team members.
