~ from Dogwood Arts
We’ve seen you out there practicing, and now it’s time to put your skills to the test! Dogwood Arts is excited to announce the Chalk (Your) Walk Competition happening in YOUR neighborhood now through April 12th!

We’ve been inspired by the words of encouragement, messages of hope, and friendly reminders to wash your hands left on sidewalks and driveways all over the city over the past few weeks! Now Dogwood Arts is taking it up a notch––we want you to show us what inspires you. Is it the first responders, all of the brave doctors and nurses, leading the fight against COVID-19? Is it your dog––who you’re getting to spend a lot more time with now that you have to stay home? A song? A local artist? Is it the dogwood trees bursting into bloom around your neighborhood?

No matter who or what it is that inspires you, we want to see!


How does it work?

  • Create a chalk masterpiece in your driveway, on the sidewalk in your neighborhood, on the fence in your backyard…wherever you want! Just make sure you’re following the current ‘Safer at Home’ guidelines from our local and state government.
  • Get creative––there are no boundaries or guidelines concerning size or subject matter

How to submit your work:

We’ve created a page on our website where you can upload your photos! You can also email submissions to shannon@dogwoodarts.com by midnight on Sunday, April 12th. (If you email your submission, please be sure to include: Artist name and age, neighborhood (with zip code), and a brief description about what it is and why it inspires you).
