QC Arts: Chalk Art Fest
2nd & Perry St.
Aug 25 noon- sunset
Aug 26 10 am - 4pm
The Chalk Art FEST is a free, family-friendly event, where visitors can watch in awe as local artists transform the plain black asphalt into magnificent works of art.
Artists will compete for $1,500 in cash prizes, including a people’s choice award. Chalk artists must register at www.quadcityarts.com/chalk by July 28 in order to participate.
Everyone is invited to participate in creating chalk art, by taking part in a collaborative community piece! For a $10 donation, you'll receive a set of pastel chalks to create a smaller square portion of a larger image. When finished, the larger image will come to life as a complete work of art!
