Arts Council invites artists to 'chalk walks' at street fair

Do you love creating works of art while others gaze in awe of your talent? If so, then the Wilton Arts Council is organizing an opportunity to “chalk the walks” during Wilton’s Street Fair on Saturday, July 12.

The Arts Council is sponsoring this artistic event along with the Wilton Chamber of Commerce, which is responsible for orchestrating the annual street fair in town.

The council’s Walk and Chalk 2014 event is open to children, families and adults who would like to showcase their art on a sidewalk section of Old Ridgefield Road. The event will start at 10 a.m. on that Saturday, and ribbons will be awarded at 2.

Altogether, there are approximately 10 sidewalk sections available for drawing and if you want to have one reserved in advance for your art work, contact Sandra Wear at or 203-849-7775.

There is no charge for participating. If you do not have chalk, it may be obtained from the Arts Council on the day of the event for a small fee.
