The Chalk Art Fest community art piece will be a rendering of iconic David Bowie.

brings together hundreds of local and regional artists that spend hours transforming the blank cement pavement into magnificent works of art, using only the medium of chalk.

Visitors strolling by can see the wonderful works of art as they come to life, vote for their favorite and even do some chalk art of their own, by taking part in the collaborative community piece. This year’s community piece is rock, fashion and art icon, David Bowie – for a $5 donation, you’ll be given a set of pastels to fill in a 2’x2’ square of the larger image.

When finished, the larger image comes to life as a complete work of art!
