Chalk Walk Tennessee Valley Fair

Dogwood Arts is seeking artists to participate in the 2019 Chalk Walk at the Tennessee Valley Fair (Sunday, September 8th, 2019). Limited Space Available! 

Dogwood Arts Chalk Walk is making another appearance this year with a day-long street painting festival turning the sidewalks at the Tennessee Valley Fair into a canvas for the region’s most talented professional and student artists.

The event will take place on Sunday, September 8th, 2019. Artists can start chalking at 9:00am – 4:00pm, with awards immediately following (the fair opens to the public at noon). $550+ in awards will be given to participating artists. Each artist will be provided with 4 free tickets to the fair, a 48 color chalk set, and the choice between a single space (4’x4’ or 4’x8’) or a double space (8’x8’). 

The participation categories are: Youth and Adult 

A special award will be presented to the artist that best incorporates a “FAIR” theme into their work (ie. cotton candy, ferris wheel, bandstand).

Participation is very limited – Artists will be accepted on a rolling basis, and there are only 30 spaces. If you are not selected, we hope you will apply to our traditional Chalk Walk (Application opens September 17. Mark your calendar.)
