Art Saint Louis is pleased to join in sponsoring the fourth annual chalk art festival, Chalk the Loop, in the Delmar Loop on Saturday, October 4, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This year’s festival celebrates the 250th birthday of the city of St. Louis with a 20’ x 30’ birthday cake mural, setting a record as the Largest Collaborative Chalk Mural in the Midwest, under the direction of Chalk Riot. Chalk the Loop invites accomplished artists and novices of all ages to contribute to this historical event, creating their own chalk masterpieces on the sidewalks of the Delmar Loop. The all-day party features Dj Alexis, guest artists, Chalklandia for kids 10 and under, and more. A Grand Prize will be awarded for each artist registration category (adult, student, child) with numerous pop-up prizes awarded in all categories.
Cost for participation in Chalk The Loop is $10 for adults, $8 for students, and $6 for children 10 and under, and free for guests of artists and onlookers. Participating artists will receive a premium box of chalk from Blick Art Materials and a Chalk The Loop goodie bag.
