Take the whole family out this Saturday, April 12, 2014 to see wonderful works of art created right before your eyes at the Chalk Art Festival.

Sponsored by the Southern Arizona Arts and Culture Alliance, the Chalk Art Festival will be held at three different locations this year: Desert Ridge Marketplace, Tempe Marketplace, and Westgate Entertainment District.

Working between 11:00am and 6:00pm, local artists will have the opportunity to create six different 8 by 6 foot chalk murals throughout the sidewalks of each complex.

Let your kids explore their creative side at the Community mural and KidZone area. In these designated spots, children and participants are invited to contribute to the community mural. Chalk and helpful art instructors will be on hand to assist with any creative roadblocks.

Don't fret if you can’t make it down for the festival, the murals will remain on view through April 30th.
