Dozens of chalk artists will hit the pavement during the 5th annual Chalk Art Festival at Tempe Marketplace and Westgate Entertainment District.
Artists from the Arizona Business Committee for the Arts (AZBCA) will descend both shopping venues to craft colorful, eye-popping, dimension-bending illustrations on 6-by-6-foot canvas murals.
Inspired guests can head over the KidsZone and community participation mural area, where kids and adults can get in on the artsy fun. The festival also offers an opportunity for fans to take home their favorite piece. From Saturday, April 28 through Saturday, May 5, the public will have the chance to vote on their favorite mural at azbizarts.org. One lucky fan per venue will win the mural they vote for. There will also be an online auction for each piece following the event.
Chalk artists and their murals will be located throughout The District at Tempe Marketplace and throughout WaterDance Plaza at Westgate Entertainment District. For more information about the Chalk Art Festival, visit tempemarketplace.com and westgateaz.com.
