Due to such a great re­sponse to the March 18 pop-up art event at Gil­bert-Stephen­son Park, of­fi­cials have added chalk art to Pa­tri­o­tism at The Post on July 3 at in the 6th Cavalry Mu­seum’s July 3 event set for Barn­hardt Cir­cle.. Not only will artists have the op­por­tu­nity to show their work, a do­na­tion makes pos­si­ble award­ing of cash prizes val­ued at $250 — just what ev­ery starv­ing artist wants to hear.

“2018 marks the 12th year for this event and we were look­ing to add some­thing new that folks would be ex­cited to see,” said com­mit­tee mem­ber Chris Mc­K­eever. “All artists, pro­fes­sional and am­a­teur, adults, stu­dents and kids are in­vited to cel­e­brate our pa­tri­otic hol­i­day by cre­at­ing chalk art for all to see.”

Ge­or­gia Chalk Artist Guild co­founders, Zach Hern­don, his wife Jessi Queen and guild mem­ber Meg Mitchell will travel from At­lanta to par­tic­i­pate and share their love and knowl­edge of chalk art while cre­at­ing orig­i­nal art for all to see. Hern­don and Queen founded the guild in 2014 to help pro­mote street paint­ing in Ge­or­gia. Mitchell has al­ready shown her work lo­cally as she was the fea­tured artist at the Thriv­ing Com­mu­nity In­ter­ac­tive Art Walk on March 18 at Gil­bert-Stephen­son Park.

Each artist will have a 6’ x 6’ square to work with. Those want­ing to com­pete for prizes must reg­is­ter
