The second annual Park Place Chalk Art Festival will be a true community collaboration of the arts. It will be held Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7. Local established artists, amateur artists, students, children and attendees will all participate in the festival to transform Park Place sidewalks into colorful works of art. The space will stretch from the Total Wine and Sears's entryways to the front of Macy's Department Store.

A community participation mural will be developed utilizing public participants, students, and event attendees in a progressive addition model that allows for a single themed piece of art to grow a super-sized street mural. The public participation mural will be administered by a local teaching artist to facilitate the growth of the signature piece as well as onsite instruction for emerging and amateur artists from an established artist.


The Park Place Chalk Festival Kidzone, a space where imaginations soar and children ages 3-12 can participate in their own original pieces of Chalk Art.

WHEN: Saturday, April 6, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., and Sunday, April 7, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
