Art and Chalk Fest 


Thank you! 

The Museum of Wisconsin Art welcomed more than 10,000 guests to the inaugural Art & Chalk Fest on July 29 and 30, 2017. This free outdoor fine arts and crafts festival featured 50 artist booths and 13 chalk artists. Art activities for all ages were offered throughout the weekend with more than 250 chalk squares chalked in the parking lot. MOWA staff and volunteers also painted the faces of 500 kids! Art & Chalk Fest featured live entertainment and music along with food vendors, a beer garden, and free weekend admission to the museum.
