The Chalk Festival returns to CMA on Sept. 11.
in-person from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11, rain or shine. The festival features sidewalk paintings by professional chalk artists and local community groups, families and individuals.
This year, the community is invited to take part in a featured chalk drawing by artist Bruno Casiano.
Participants will have an opportunity to showcase their own art on the museum’s south plaza and throughout the pathways that wind through the Fine Arts Garden and down to Wade Lagoon.
Squares and boxes of chalk are available for $10 with on-site, day-of registration (supplies are limited). The Chalk Festival is free to visitors wishing to just check out the artists’ work and listen to live music by the reggae act Outlaws I & I.
