Visit James Weldon Johnson Park to watch local artists create chalk masterpieces to celebrate the theme for 2023 “Mythical Creatures”. During the competition, artists of all ages will have up to six hours to create a work of art entirely from chalk. Visitors to the park will be able to watch the art happening right before their eyes, talk to the artists and vote on which ones they like best. Participants will be given chalk and other tools to create their sidewalk art. Once the time is up, judges in the art community will visit each piece and vote on their favorites. Combined with the public vote, there will be first, second and third place prizes in three categories: Main Artists, High School Student, and Middle School Student.
March 25, 12noon to 5pm
