Capital Chalk Art Fair
Call to chalk

CAPITAL STREET ART will be held in conjunction with JAZZFEST on Saturday, September 9th at Riverside Park in Jefferson City. Watch the sidewalks come alive during JAZZFEST. If you have never participated in Street Art we encourage you to join in a day of music, creativity and fun. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners.

Sign Up Today! Registration is limited.
Drawing is done directly on the sidewalks – just like graffiti. You may begin working at any time after 12:30p.m. A registration table will be set up near the Amphitheatre for chalk pick-up and you will be directed as to where to begin your Street Art. You will have an assigned workspace to chalk. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded in the following weeks. Let your imagination run wild. Reproduce a renaissance painting, a family photograph, a still-life, a cartoon, or portrait – whatever you want.

Guidelines:

• Only pastel chalk provided by Capital Arts may be used. If you need more chalk in particular colors, you can exchange color with other street artists or ask at the registration table.

• Artwork must be appropriate for public viewing. Capital Arts is entitled to photograph and reproduce the street painting for purposed of historical record and future publicity.

• We encourage street painters to sign their work. If you are reproducing an image originally created by another artist it is important to credit the original artist and the title.

• Please respect the street artists who are working near you. Please do not walk on their drawings or have open beverage containers, which could spill and damage a drawing.
