2014 Chalk for Charity Chalk Art Festival

Artists and Sponsors Needed

On Saturday, February 1st Downtown Lakeland will be the target of chalk artists young and old during the 3rd Annual Chalk for Charity Festival. Using chalk and liquid tempera and chalk as their medium and pavement as their canvas, professionals and novices will turn the streets of asphalt into an outdoor art display. The exhibitions will be located on Kentucky and Tennessee Avenues. Sponsors are being sought for the available street spaces. There are two canvas size options (10ft x 10ft and 5ft x 5ft). This is a great opportunity to have your company represented in a creative artistic way while supporting a great cause. The public will be able to purchase tokens to vote for their favorite art with prizes to the entries receiving the most votes. Additionally, there will be both Professional and Amateur Awards presented. There will be a Children’s area where Parents and Grandparents can purchase small squares for them to display their budding talent.
