CHALK IT UP

Plano's favorite family tradition is back for 2018! Chalk It Up is a free sidewalk chalk mural competition held in the Downtown Plano Arts District. The competition begins at 10:00am on Saturday when the festival opens. Participants can register for free and are provided a space and chalk. Competition categories include professional, amateur young adult, and amateur adult. Chalk murals are judged by a panel from the Plano Art Association and prizes are awarded to the top three finishers.


Kids zone

MAKE-IT TAKE-IT STATION

The idea of this station is for attendees to make a piece of art and add to the installation, then take someone else's art creation home with them. The art piece will be ever changing as people are adding and taking away different art pieces throughout the festival. Come and be a part of this public art installation!
