Call for Art: South Grand Chalk Walk
Chalk Walk 2018
Call For Art: Chalk Walk Juried Artists
As we begin to make plans for our third South Grand Chalk Walk, we are excited to announce our “Call For Art” invite to new and past Artists to be paid to create eye-catching artwork that will entice visitors to the festival. We are seeking 4 talented Artists to complete a work of art for the Chalk Walk. You will be paid $300, fed and basically treated like the big cheese you are. Your work will be on display along with the competing artists, but not part of the judged competition or community favorite. Your work, name and website will be promoted in advance of, during and after the festival. Patrons can expect all that South Grand has to offer – entertainment, music, and your amazing art.
We are seeking art in all styles. Please submit your proposed design. Please keep in mind size and complexity, we are chalking on side walks and you may have to adjust your design to the space we assign to you.
