2016 Chalk Art Event
Saturday, July 30, 2016 | 8am – 4pm
Returning this year, Sounds & Sights Festival will hold its 4th community chalk art event. Participants of all abilities and ages are encouraged to help transform concrete beneath the iconic Chelsea Clocktower into vibrant colors and works of art. The contest will take place on Saturday, July 30th from 8am to 4pm.
All participants will be assigned a free space to showcase their work. Spectators will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece of work in 4 categories. A “People’s Choice” Award will be presented to two winners in each category. The categories and prizes are:
(1 artist of at least 18 years)
Adult prizes: $500 first place & $250 second place
(must be at least 2 artists, of any age, representing a group, organization or family)
Group prizes: $250 first place & $125 second place
