Join us for September's Arts Night Out as we welcome a record number of talented artists to create colorful masterpieces in chalk on the sidewalks of 13 downtown sites during the 8th annual Chalk Art Festival. Drawing takes place from 10 am-4 pm on Friday. The public is encouraged to watch chalk art pieces develop & to view completed work in the evening while enjoying Northampton’s monthly gallery walk 5-8 pm. Cash prizes will be awarded by a panel of five judges for the top three creations. Presentations are made by the Mayor on the steps of City Hall at 5 pm. There will also be an informal family free draw 5-7 pm. Participants will be asked to help “decorate” the RETROFAIRE site located in the area between Thornes Marketplace & the city parking garage. The Northampton Chalk Art Festival is sponsored by Chartpak, Inc., the Downtown Northampton Association & the Northampton Radio Group. It is produced in cooperation with the City of Northampton & Northampton Center for the Arts.
