Attention all fans of awesome sidewalk chalk: It’s Chalk-A-Con!

A contest featuring the fine art of sidewalk chalk, September 1st.

From 11:00 am to 3:00 in Columbia Hall.

There’s something truly inspiring about the raw visual power of sidewalk chalk art that’s done well. It’s an art form that can bring out hidden talents. And we’d like to see how your talent manifests when colored chalk shakes hands with concrete….at our Chalk-A-Con contest.

Entrants can do their thing from about 10:00 am until 3:00 pm on the sidewalk between Columbia Hall and the Visual Arts building. Then the judging takes place at 4:00 pm. Awards will be presented at 5:00 pm.

Chalk will be provided, of course. So all you need to bring is your willingness to enter. Entrants age 12 and younger can compete for free. For those older than 12 the $10 entry fee will fund the purse to be divided by the winners. Enter early on the morning of September 1, as space is limited.
