Chalk Fest 2012

8 08 2012

Mark your calendars and come out to support the 2012 Chalk Art Festival! This is the brainchild of someone who is a super advocate for both art and at-risk children and youth. The awesome Ms. G-G has this year coordinated not one but two Chalk Art Festivals, the first of which took place in Newton in June and the second of which will happen in Wichita this Saturday, August 11, 10am – 2pm, at Old Town Square. Local artists will be creating chalk art on panels and all others (kids and adults!) are invited to created sidewalk chalk drawings. There will be live music and food and more. Following the events, artists’ works will be displayed and auctioned off at City Arts (334 N. Mead, on Old Town Square). All proceeds will benefit Youthville’s Expressive Arts Center, a space where art becomes a vehicle for honest sharing, healing, and community building among both at-risk youth and the wider town populations.
