Artists from all ages will have up to six hours to create and complete a work of art entirely from chalk. Visitors to the park will be able to watch the art happening right before their eyes. They’ll be able to talk to the artists and vote on which ones they like best.

The theme for 2023 will be “mythical creatures.” Participants will be given chalk and other tools to create their sidewalk art.

Once time is up, esteemed judges from 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 artist

  • High school students

  • Middle school students
