Mission Statement

Promote awareness and appreciation of the arts in the community.

Description

Kansas City Chalk and Walk Festival, a Missouri nonprofit corporation,501c3, will conduct an annual, two day event, which will showcase hundreds of professional, student and amateur artists who, on their knees, sometimes skateboards or lounge chairs!, will create lively and powerful chalk "paintings" on sponsored brick canvas on the streets of Kansas City, Missouri (Crown Center).

Visual artists receive free pastel chalk and water and they are able to display their business cards to promote themselves.

Local businesses and individuals can sponsor a canvas by contributing a donation to Kansas City Chalk and Walk. The business or individual’s name will be prominently featured adjacent to sponsored street squares. All sponsors’ names will be published in the web site and promotional materials.

Sections of the event site will be apportioned to children, who will receive an area as their street canvas. Each child will be provided a bucket of chalk at no charge. This area is called Children’s Creative Corridor. In addition, educational workshops will provide "make and take" items, along with face painting and other activities.

Visitors to the event will be able to casually stroll through the event and watch the artists as they create their classical and modern paintings. In addition to watching the visual artists, attendees will be able to listen and view local street performers.

Visitors will be eager to come back on the second day of the festival as they will want to see the "finished product".

The creative process the artist goes through--how the image is constructed and progresses, is usually done in the privacy of their studio. This street painting festival lets the attendees see the work come to life outside of studio/gallery walls.
