  • Make your own chalk masterpiece at the Chalk Art Festival.

It's time to get those creative juices flowing because the fourth annual Park Place Chalk Art Festival is poised to beautify the sidewalks of the mall, located off of Broadway Boulevard.

Amateur and aspiring artists and dabblers in the craft can take up a stick of chalk and start making something colorful and bright on the brick walkways in the designated community participation areas. For kids 3 to 13 years of age, a children's area will allow them to create their own works of art.

If chalk art is more of a spectator sport for you, no worries—over a dozen professional artists will be on site making intricate large scale, but temporary pieces for the event. Participating muralists this year include Matt Cotton, Wesley Fawcett Creigh, Carolyn Watson Dubisch, Ignacio Garcia and more. You can find those murals in the South and North outdoor walkways, as well as indoors at the Sears wing.

The event is also seeking volunteers for the festival, which takes place on Saturday, March 28 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 29 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. If you're interested in helping out or looking for more information on the event in general, visit SAACA's website. Admission to the event is free.
