This year marks the 16th anniversary of one of Oberlin’s favorite summer events, Chalk Walk! On Saturday, June 24, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., local and regional artists will create imaginative chalk drawings throughout downtown Oberlin. Volunteers will be on hand to provide free materials and visitors of all ages can add their own artwork to the sidewalk gallery.
Oberlin Chalk Walk is a collaborative event organized by Allen Memorial Art Museum, Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (FAVA), Oberlin Business Partnership (OBP), Oberlin Heritage Center, and Oberlin Public Library.
Master artists for this year’s event are Wendy Mahon, Héctor Castęllanos, and Dan Cherney. Local artists include Keith Joe Dick, Joseph Toothman, Karly West, and Beth Wolosz. Artists contributing to the wall outside the Oberlin Public Library are Alex Borroni, Jan Dregalla, Terry Flores, Dana Juliano, and Cara Romano. The theme for the wall is “Save the Coral Reef.”
If you can’t engage your inner artist in creating chalk art, come downtown to view art in action. Take a leisurely stroll (be sure to take photos), enjoy a meal or a snack at one of our local restaurants, visit our unique retail shops, and be amazed by what people can create from a few sticks of chalk and a sidewalk square.
