Call for Chalk Artists Patriotism at The Post Adds Chalk Art for 2018
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
