In addition to a guest chalk artist who will be creating a signature chalk mural, this fall we will select up to 10 artists or teams by jury of all applications to create street paintings on the asphalt with soft pastels during the three days of the festival. These artists and teams will be competing for $250 cash, a $50 downtown Tempe gift card, and an archival copy of the 2014 Fall Festival’s commemorative poster, featuring the Featured Artist Shawn Ray Harris’ photography. We invite you to apply.
The festival also will offer students, children, parents and attendees a chance to join in the fun. Small spaces will be available to walk-up festival attendees who would like to try their hand at creating chalk art. For five dollars festival-goers can purchase a commemorative box of 12 quality, colorful soft pastels to color a space and the public can sign up on-site for participation.
