Make Art. Have Fun. Spread Joy.

At the heart of summer during the last weekend in July, Art Institutions statewide encourage you to take to your sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots to create bright, joyful art and spread positive messages to share with friends, family, and neighbors that remind us all that even apart, we’re in this together.

Please Chalk Responsibly

Follow the law. Check with your local authorities to find out if chalk art is permitted in your area. 
Chalk only on your property. Be sure to get permission before chalking on any property that is not yours including neighboring sidewalks, any public property, or parking lots.
Respect your neighbors. Consider others who will enjoy your art. If an 8-year old shouldn’t read it, don’t write or draw it.
Respect the environment. Use eco-friendly chalk or water-based tempera paints. Avoid chalking within 50-feet of water sources such as lakes, rivers, and streams.
