Mission Statement

To bring diverse people together to celebrate, be inspired by, and participate in the culturral and performing arts.

Description

The 2013 Sarasota Chalk Festival 'Legacy of Valor' honoring our serveice members, is a six-day cultural event celebrating the performance art form of street painting when artists use the pavement as their canvas and pastel chalk as their medium. The public are invited to participate, attend, and interact with the artists as they go about their work.

"The festival is as raw as it gets to feeling and seeing an Outdoor Museum in Motion as fine artists take to their hands and knees for days, recreating old master paintings, original works of art and 3D compositions right before our eyes," states Artistic Director and Event Chair, Denise Kowal.

The festival is free for all to participate in and attend, and draws customers to local businesses in Sarasota by refusing to sell space to outside vendors. It pays for travel expenses, lodging, and supplies of artists who are approved early and uses quality sustainable products so that while our artists may get dirty, everything else is kept clean. The Sarasota Chalk Festival’s success relies on 4 different contributors: dedicated volunteers, generous sponsors, passionate artists, and enthusiastic visitors. The experience is rewarding, so why not consider joining us in spreading art, happiness, and creativity in Sarasota?
