Make Chalk Art!


A CHALK ART CONTEST for the best drawing will be judged after 4PM.  Top three winners will receive cash prizes ($150/$100/$50).  Ten runners up get a $25 gift certificate from Books, Inc.  Winners will be notified by Wednesday after the event.  See prior winners here.

There are no fees to artists, areas of sidewalk are assigned for you to create your own fanciful chalk drawings. The theme for this year is “Chalking Beautiful Music.” Families or groups may work together, artists may work alone, but everyone comes away with a sense of pride in their work for all to see. 

Otherwise, register in person on Saturday, August 13 at the event booths at 1495 or 1601 Shattuck Ave. where a box of colorful artist's chalk is available for $10/$20 cash. Help yourself to gloves, charcoal, and kneeling cardboard (please return). Artwork may be as small as 2' square and up to 6' x 3' but please leave room for pedestrians and do not draw directly in doorways or driveways. Best if drawn up against the building or near the curb. We want your work to stay in place for as long as possible. Please only draw at your assigned area as there are businesses that don't want chalk on their sidewalks.

Same-day registration takes place 10AM-4PM in event booth located at 1600 Shattuck Avenue @ Cedar St. where special artist's chalk is available for $10/$20 or you may BYO. Please use saturated chalk colors if you are competing. See prior year’s winners here.

Another Bullwinkel Show and the North Shattuck Association retain the rights to use the artwork in any manner they see fit. Thank you so much for making art come alive!
