 The annual Denver Chalk Art Festival will be held in Larimer Square to promote arts awareness and education in Denver.  For two days the street will be closed in order to transform Larimer Square into a Museum of Chalk Art.   You will see artists turning pavement into a canvas of art with vivid pastel chalk.   There are 200 artists expected this weekend.

  • Featured Artists: The event showcases five madonnari (professionals in this medium); all are award-winning street painters including first-place finishes in the International Street Painting Competition in Grazie di Curtatone, Italy. Two of the madonnari, Stephen DeOrio and Grace Hollenbeck, are Colorado residents.
  • Live Music: Live music will take place throughout the festival.
  • Youth Challenge: The Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design presents the festival’s Youth Challenge, where a dozen talented groups of youth and students from Colorado schools and organizations will compete for cash prizes that will go to their respective school’s visual arts departments.
  •  Kids Corner: Children and their parents can take part in this festival for a small donation and let their imaginations soar as they create their own mini masterpieces.
  • Beverages for the Whole Family: The wine and beer locations also have a variety of non-alcoholic products to quench even the most thirsty art-enthusiast!   Many restaurants, bars & clubs will be open!
  • Accommodations: There are so many great places to stay in Denver if you choose to stay in Denver for the weekend.

Parking may be difficult, and wise to take public transportation - RTD buses or light rail are recommended.    With sunny & warm weather this weekend, you may want to get there early.

 

Wondering how this event is cleaned up?   Street sweepers will be by to "pick up" the chalk and properly dispose of so not to pollute.    Unusable carpet samples and remnants will be used by artists for their kneeling pads.    All cardboard, plastic, and glass will be recycled to be eco-friendly.

 

If you need more information on this event - call 720-331-6402.
