Chalk Festival 

When: Sat., Sept. 16 2017
Over the past 26 years, the Cleveland Museum of Art's Chalk Festival has become one of the museum's most highly anticipated community art events. This weekend, join the fun with your neighbors, family, friends, local schools and professional artists. Large squares (approximately 3-by-4-feet of sidewalk) can be reserved for $20 (includes a 24-color box of chalk), and small squares (approximately 2-by-3-feet) are $10 (including a 12-color box of chalk). It all takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow, rain or shine. This year's event includes a sneak peek at the CMA's new Nord Family Greenway that will soon connect the museum to CWRU's campus, as well as performances by Umojah Nation and One World Tribe, and live painting by six Cleveland street painters inspired by the CMA's upcoming fall exhibitions: Chaekgeori: Pleasure of Possessions in Korean Painted Screens and The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s. Watching the artists and enjoying the entertainment is free. Individuals do not need to pre-register, but groups are asked to contact the CMA's community arts department at 216-707-2483 or commartsinfo@clevelandart.org. (Usmani)
