Welcome to Chalk It Up!
Here Comes a Chalkin' Summer!
Summer is upon us, and with it comes all sorts of Chalk It Up activity. Of course our 2014 Chalk It Up Festival in Fremont Park is quickly approaching, so mark your calendars for Labor Day Weekend Aug 30—Sept 1… and then come mark some sidewalks with us!
Artist Registration closes on Sunday, August 24th at midnght. No applications will be accepted after the deadline. Artists Sign ups will be available at Chalk It Up if we have enough sponsors and squares.
SPONSOR A CHALK SQUARE! SUPPORT LOCAL ARTS! PROMOTE YO'SELF!
Everyone loves the Chalk It Up Festival, but few people think of Chalk It Up as a benefit for the arts... and even fewer think of it as an excellent way to to get seen! However, if you sponsor a Chalk Square at Chalk It Up, not only are you supporting the festival you love, but you are also helping us raise money for local youth art programs AND your sponsored square will get seen by THOUSANDS of people. Remember, we had 35,000 people come out last year SPECIFICALLY to look at our sidewalk art! So sponsor as yourself, as your family, as your business, as your band, as your favorite organization... and get seen by everyone who comes to the event!
Sponsor one square for $150; two squares for $250! Fill out our sponsor application and help us raise even more money for our Chalk It Up art grants!
This is the same amount of advertising money that will buy you a small business card size ad in a regional print publication for one printing!
