First Friday - Chalk the Walk

September's First Friday theme is Chalk the Walk! This popular First Friday will include four featured artists. Visit last year's Superman artist, Mike Dowling, at the Plaza between the Phillips Avenue Diner and the old CNA Surety Building. Check out the amazing 3D Superman drawing he did for 2012. Artists Jason Folkerts and Nick & Nicole Fischer can be found at the Federal Courthouse Plaza at 12th & Phillips. Look for the AIGA group (American Institute of Graphic Arts) downtown too. Location TBD. There is also a Chalk the Walk competition! Registered participants will create chalk art during the day and early evening, and a small group of judges will view the drawings between 6:30pm - 7:15pm. An awards ceremony will take place at 7:30pm at the Riverfront Amphitheater, located between 6th & 8th Street. Winners will receive prizes from various downtown businesses. If you're interested in competing in the chalk competition, please contact Stacey Jans by August 26th at or 338-4009. In addition to the featured artists and Chalk the Walk contest, many stores will leave a bucket of chalk outside their door for anybody to do a whimsical drawing this First Friday. So bring the whole family downtown and get involved! - See more at:
