Chalk Walk competition moves online

As Seen On WATE

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Messages of hope and encouragement can also be seen on sidewalks and driveways across Knoxville, which is how Dogwood Arts has decided this year’s Chalk Walk competition will happen – except, but at your home.

Every year, artists head to Market Square to share their talent and create a chalk masterpiece.

This year, the competition will take place on Facebook: Now through April 12, artists are asked to create a chalk masterpiece in their own neighborhoods and submit photos.

The theme: Something that inspires you, something positive during the pandemic.

  • Get creative –– there are no boundaries or guidelines concerning size or subject matter
  • Submit photos of finished artwork along with a short description of what it is and why it inspires you. Entries will be collected through midnight on April 12.
  • Photos can be uploaded here or emailed to by midnight on Sunday, April 12. (If submissions are emailed, please include: Artist name and age, neighborhood (with zip code), and a brief description about what it is and why it inspires you).
